I just purchased a Carvin Quad-X preamp...

I have about 500 bills left to burn and am confused as to what power amp/ cab to get... any hardcore suggestions from anyone? i'd love some ideas!


thanks guys

 

 

Check into a Mesaboogie 50/50 poweramp, used they can be found for around $450.

 

If not, then check into the Carvin T100s, Peavey 50/50, peavey 60/60.

 

Those are basicly the on Budget poweramps. They do sound good thought.

 

 

good luck,

hmmm, not so good. If you've got $500 to spend on a power amp AND cabinet, i think you might have to sacrifice a fair bit of quality.

 

No mesa boogie power amps for you young lad

You can get a Carvin 2x12 for around $200 new if you are near a Carvin store. They have things like last-years-model, and there's nothing wrong with them. That's how I got mine.

 

That'll leave $300 left to spend on a power amp.

 

I think a Mesa/Boogie 20/20 is more than anyone really needs, but if you have to have more juice, get a 50/50 or something like that.

 

Good luck.

(Cough) cab in sig (cough) if you live (cough) anywhere near michigan (cough) ahem..... sorry cold season.

 

And what does hardcore suggestions mean?

But anyways if i were you I'd go with a Mesa 20/20 (used they're pretty cheap) and a cheaper cab. Cuz you can always upgrade, and SS poweramps are no fun.

Heh, classic :D

 

 

 

Seriously, I've seen some people suggesting the Mesa 20/20 but I can tell you honestly that they often go for just as much or even more than the 50/50
