15 watt combos
« on: April 22, 2012, 09:17:03 PM »
pardon the new guy, but why is it there are no 2 channel 15 watt combos on the market by any manufacturer (not even just randall) that are footswitchable. i've got a 30 solid state amp that i run on 1 or <1 all the time. i'd like to have a 15 just so i could run it a bit louder and get some better breakup on the distortion (i'd really like to snag me a nb15/ friggin clean channel sounds amazing!). i know that it's prolly to keep the pricepoint down or something like that but i'd be willing to pony up the bucks to get a 15 watter with a footswitch.

i know i'm a freak of a guitar player (wanting fewer watts instead of more and buying amps based on the clean channel) but someone throw me a bone here. in case you'd really like to what has brought me to the point of denying my 100 watt tube head and seeking a 15 watt amp (with a footswitch), my band plays churches (and pretty much only churches) and alot of times they're older churches built with live acoustics (bare hardwood floors and walls, bare pews, no carpet). i'd rather go with a small amp than a processor because 70% of the time, there is no sound man (or not one i trust).

thanks in advance!

You're not a freak wanting lower wattages mate, alot of people are heading that way, look at Jim Root from Slipknot/Stonesour, just released his Signature 15/7w Orange Amplifier.
More people are realizing that you dont need 400w of amplifier, you can get great tone from a 5w amp, you just need to be mic'd on stage.

But I love my 400w and 300w monsters!  :lol:

But seriously what I love about the T2 and V2's, is that they can still get down to whisper volumes and still sound good; just engage the FX loop and bring down the FX return knob.

If you ask me about Randall 15W SS amps I would redesigned it a bit to get warmer tone like Peavey do. It is not amp you will go to tour with and you must watch for freq. response, its bedroom amp and it should sound sweet at first.

Make it sound sweet so kids would like it more.
