1 barryg_nyc 1 year ago Hi, TGP (it's been a while). This is not a Gretsch-specific question, but I trust your expertise.My daughter has begun to play bass, in addition to guitar. She's recently formed a band at college and is playing (very) small rooms. It's a 3 piece band (guitar, bass & vocals) with no drummer. Style-wise they play indie rock. Typical room size might be to play in front of 20-30 people.She needs a small bass amp for practice and these small gigs. She'd like to pick up something relatively compact, light and cheap (under 200 used). Normally, I think bass amps need to be at least 100W to play over the drums, but they don't plan to have a drummer. If that changes, she can upgrade.So, thinking of a simple combo amp. Would a Fender Rumble 40W (1x10) be enough for her needs? Or would she need 100W and a 1x12? The old Bassman amps are great, but they're pretty heavy.Any other suggestions? Peavey or Ampeg maybe? Thanks!
