    I'm looking for a combo that I can use in rehearsals and can add a speaker for more volume. Play rock and blues.

    I'm trying to decide between the WM 12 or the Nemesis 210.

    Can someone tell me their experiences with these two amps?

    I have a Nemesis NC210 Combo amp. I love it. It sounds great and for the price it really is unbeatable. I would like to stick a a 2x10 cab under it to give it more umph... I recommend it.. don't know much about the other amp. sorry
     
  3. get the nemesis...they are by far the best 2x10 combo out there in that price range. I honestly htink that the nemesis will blow the WM out of the water. Plus, get a 4ohm 2x10 to put underneath the nemesis later, and you will be a lean mean bass playing machine...loud too.....

    Steve, the SWR WM 12 is not in the same class as the Nemesis IMHO.

    Not near as loud, and I personally think that the Nemesis series sounds better than the Workingman's series too.

    I have a WM 12, and I don't care for the sound of the Nemesis 210, but the 210 is louder and probably would be your best bet, of the two.
