    No, leave the Laney RBW300 alone. Trust me.

    Between the Kustom and Karvin, get the Karvin. For just a few bucks more, you could get an SWR Workingman's 12, which is a real amp.

    Perhaps, but it'd be GK, wouldn't it.

    I'd definitely take the Carvin over the Kustom if I had to choose between the two. I also agree that the SWR Workingman's 12 is a better amp. The only thing is that if you play with a somewhat loud drummer then you'd definitely have to go into the house pa. That's ok though because those combos have excellent direct outs. I used to have a Workingman's 15 that served me very well for years and there were a couple of times when it couldn't hang with a full-on loud drummer and guitarist when I was just jamming for fun. It was perfect for the jazzy/funky acoustic band I was in though.

    How about Ashdown?

    ?

    Sorry about all the Musicians Friend crap, it's the only place I can find pictures and prices.

    I was also looking at a Peavey TNT Black Widow at a local shop for $400, anybody know anything about them?
