What should I do?

    I need a new amp.
    Right now I have a squier 15 thingy. It realy does not do its job, because I can only play with the "high" truned up and the rest truned down. Playing at the volume of no higher then 3 or the speaker rattles.

    Right now I have 350 canadian dollors in my biggy bank, and I get paid $20 for cutting the grass once a week and sometimes I wash the Van and the truck and get paid $20 for doing that. Yes, I have been putting applications out everywhere.

    I jam with my friends (Garage rock band) who have drum kit, Peavy 15, and a fender 100 watt power of sound thing.

    I'm thinking I should just buy something a little bigger then my amp I have now. Maybe between 25 and 60 watts. Because I have to carry this thing to each of my friends house.

    Any Ideas what I should do?

    Thanks
    Jim
     
  2. A Behringer combo would fit the bill. I got a 60 watt one for 280 $ canadian and it's pretty decent. Very good price, solid amp. Weighs 48 pounds, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem. The 30 watt version is lighter and basically the same, minus some power and lows, and hovers around 200$.

    Obviously, an Ampeg B-50R would be very very nice, but we're talking over 500$ for it. Depends on what you'd want to spend.

    Fender Bassman 60. It might even sound a little better than my SWR Workingman's 12.

    its a shame eden doesnt make combos....

    i agree with munji, those bassmans are pretty nice. and theyre a good buy and pretty reliable. but also the ashdown electric blue combos are good too. reasonably priced and loud if you need them to be. give them a look.

    Well, there's always Eden's CXC series. More costly than many, but less costly than a Metro.

    and eden does make (or used to make anyways) the nemesis line- they sound pretty good and are relatively lightweight. you WILL get more for your hard earned ( ;) ) $$$ buying used though...
