: (First of all, I already apologize for my english ;)
: I am going to buy a combo amp to use in rehearsal and little gigs (club, cafés ...)
: Of course, i haven't got much money, and I'm wondering what's the minimum power you need. I play rock in a trio (drums, guitar, bass), which plays not loud as metal but sometimes ... hum ... powerfully (?).
: So 150W ? 200W ? 250W ? 300W ?
: What do i need ?
: I tried Warwick Sweet 15, Warwick CCL, SWR Workingman's 15 and plan to try some Hugues & Kettner (XL 200 and XXL 300) and some Ampegs'.

Nathanael,
I just saw your post -- I live in Germany, and after a lot of searching, recently found a great deal through Thomann Music -- a Hughes & Kettner BassForce XXL 300W combo for only DM 1,290 (about $650). Competitors in Germany offer this same amp for up to $900, and in the US it´s list cost is about $1,100, so Thomann´s price is excellent. This is a great combo, lots of bang for the buck! (certainly the cheapest 300w from the bunch you listed.) I can highly recommend it, if you are watching your budget. Stay close to home, and the price will be more reasonable. Go to Thomann at www.thomann.de.
Good luck!

Mike
