These last days I found myself looking on YouTube for amp reviews and this is because at the gig we had a few days ago I played on a 15-16 years old 50 watts Peavey combo (with a Celestion speaker), made in USA. It belonged to a new buddy, he lent it to me for playing there, I still owe him at least a couple of beers for this.
The fact is that I didn’t quite know what to expect from that amp but I was really amazed of how nice it sounds, so it opened again my taste for amps.
The fact is that at this moment I have an old Russian combo, I have it since a long time and I really like the sound, but the wattage is not great, it easily gets covered by our drummer, so it’s not that useful, so lately I play directly on the PA.
However, since I got interested again in this and started to listen a few amp reviews on YouTube, I said to myself I should ask you here: what amp/combo would you recommend?
I personally keep an eye on the Line 6 Spider IV amp since I own a Line 6 Variax guitar, but for some reason I am not quite convinced, even if the guitar gave me more than expected.
What’s your take on that?
