: Bassists of the world,
: After having my current amp checked out to find it was no good, im searching for the perfect amp in my price range... A good loud amp, preferably 50 or more watts and a big enough speaker, between 250$ and 350$. I've been doing my own research and have tried out many amps, and ive come to the PeaveyTKO115S amp, and thinking about buying it. Also, i was impressed by the Hartke line, but most were beyond my price range... The Peavey is 350$, and would give me the sound and loudness i need. But before i make a purchase (which probably wont be for a while with my current earnings) does anyone know anything about these particular amps and their quality? Are there any particular amps that would be a better deal in this price range? Well I would appreciate any suggestions on good loud amps in this range. ---Also--- Hey Pat H. thanks for your input on the old ampeg, turns out the amp was transistors, an old B-100 with the serial number 144563 (if that says anything). I took it in to the local guitar shop, the guy told me there wasnt too much wrong with it and that it wasnt made to go up too much louder than that anyway, so hell. Im not sure if i completely trust his opinion, but oh well thanks anyway. So now i have a practice amp, but still need an upgrade... well thanks bass people for your help, its appreciated..... peace + love , chris

Hi Chris,
if you are looking to spend $350. on an amp, give serious consideration to tha carvin line. For 299. you can get
a PB100-15, which as you may have guessed is 100W into a 15inch speaker. Or for 399. you can 160W into a 15"
speaker. I have 3 carvin amps now and could not be happier. Thier craftsmanship is top notch, and the amp itself
is clean, punchy and LOUD. Carvin amps come with a variable compressor which sounds great. They also have a noise
gate. Carvin is by mail order only so getting your hands on one to try out is tough(unless you live close to L.A.)
Unfortunately, I dont know anything about the peavy, so i cant help you on that subject. At least check out the carvins
at www.carvin.com you may be surprised. enjoy..............john
