Bytrix Posted February 28, 2006 Report Share Posted February 28, 2006 For a guitarist just starting out with a small band what kinda amp power am I going to need? I know there are a bunch of things to take into consideration like how many people we'll be playing to, the size of the places and what other equipment I have and I've never used anything other than small combo-amps which has been fine up to now. I run a V-Amp Pro along with a few other rack units and some pedals straight into a 30w combo amp at the moment (on it's clean channel) and I want to go down the cab path, so first of all what wattage should I look at in a cab, and if I get something like a 400w (like the stereo behringer cab I am thinking of getting), will it still sound good at 200w? So If I'm getting a cab, I then want a head/power amp to drive the signal from my V-Amp into the cab.. BUT I don't want it to saturate the sound or change the tone from the V-amp to the cab, I just simply want it to amplify and be capable of running the cab at it's max (if that's ever needed)), any recommendations? I'm on a fairly tight budget, and I've just got so confused looking at cabs/heads/poweramps that I have no idea what I actually need in terms of power. Any help is appreciated...
