I've been looking into buying a new amp for a while now, since my band is starting to gig and such and the one I have now just isn't enough.
I have narrowed the possibilities down to two and was hoping for a little help from you guys Smile

Ashdown, MAG C115-300 EVO II Combo:

Which amp? MAG-c115300EVOIINEW

Fender, Rumble 350:

Which amp? 2315700020_md

Also, if you have any recommendations, I'd appreciate them a lot.

I swear I heard Ashdown has relability issues or they lie about their power ratings or something, or was that another company? I'd go with the Fender regardless, to be honest Razz

That's Behringer. Ashdown is a very reputable company.

Both are good combos, I'd suggest you try them before buying and choose your favourite

Yeah, that was it. See I could also clearly remember people singing Ashdown's praises so I got all confused Razz

yeah, that's the problem hehe, I've tried both out and I can't quite decide, although I must say I'm leaning a bit towards the Rumble...but, it's 34 kg!

You could get some mountable wheels to put it on or something.

It'd save money on a gym membership. If you ever want a workout just lug your amp up and down some stairs Razz

disclaimer: don't actually ever do that unnecessarily, you'll break your spine

haha, thanks for the responses guys, but indeed, the rumble actually has wheels, so that will probably not be a problem.
Btw, I'm actually going from a Behringer which I'm not all to happy about, but ehh, I guess it's ok.

Either one is good i believe.

ashdown is cool. Beware though you will need an extension cab to get the full power from the combo

I personally recommend the Hartke vx 3500 combo. That beats the crap out of buying an extension for either of those two.
