  • Low wattage amp heads for jammin wit band

    Hey all, I'm looking into getting a 2x10 cab built, and looking at some of the lower wattage amp heads like the h&k tubemeister 18, or a jet city city 20 watter or even a Mesa mini rectifier at 25 watts. Now I know these are are great for recording, but can I use one of the to jam wit my band. We are a real grungy 3 piece, kinda nirvana or shellac- ish, and just jam in my lil basement jam room, maybe get out and eventually hit a local club or two. Are these amps up to the task... I know the difference isn't so much volume as it is headroom but will they keep up?

    All of those will deafen you and include the ignator rebel 20 amp.
    Yep to all.
    A 2x12" speaker cabinet pushes more sound and is louder.
    You would be amazed with a 4x12" cabinet, the more air u move the louder !
    But a 2x12" cabinet with eminence wizards and a rebel 20 is badass and gets overdrive and power tube distortion going and becomes a instrument itself.

    When ordering or buying power tubes ask for a high Ip or milliamp draw tube set.
    Your gonna need to learn how to bias those little amps too.
    Cause you gonna pushum hard !

      Yes I did forget about the egnator tho I'm lookin at the rebel 30 just cause its a two channel. I'd like to stick to the two tens just cuz I like compact setups but maybe even a 4x10 cab would be pretty cool. Thanks for your insight.

    Ht20 would fit your bill
