  1. how would the ashdown perfect ten combo compare to the peavey max 110 combo

    one is thirty watts, the other is twenty, ill be using it for private practice, and a 20 or so piece jazz band... you guys are the experts so which would you recommend (anything louder than a double bass will really work)

    ill be using a squier vintage modified jazz (fretted):cool:
  2. really guys no help?

    i use a peavey max 110 for practices against a drummer and guitarist, plus vocals, and it works great. it's tiny but i never have to crank it past about 10 o' clock to be heard clearly. plus peavey's are built like tanks.
    i vote peavey.
    though i've never heard the ashdown.

    I used a Peavey Minx combo with a 10" speaker and 35 watts a number of times with a large jazz band. It did the job as long as I kept it at a level just a bit louder than a double bass. I'd probably go with the Peavey if those two were my only options.

    I have a Yorkville Sound XM50C that I use for practice and teaching at home that would suit you just fine. I paid about $329 Canadian for it. Sounds much bigger than it is yet it's only 50 watts through a 10" speaker and weighs 30 lbs.
  6. well i guess ill go for the peavey... they seem to be solid, and i cant really find the ashdown in any nearby stores
