Almost anything will work. I have a cheap Yamaha FX something or other that ran about $150, and that's just fine for those Kumbaya moments. No electronics, etc. -- but if you're not recording, etc.,...

I have no idea where you are. That makes a difference, because you may not be able to pick up some of the things I can.

For example, a Carvin PM12A with 400W RMS output and a 12" LF driver and a 1"...

That's a "NO" on the pocket pod. If you're going to look at one of those, look instead at the Korg Pandora P5XD or the Pandora Mini. The Mini is around $99 (new price), the P5 about half again or...

The Carvin TS100 is excellent if you must have a tube power amp, and it will run either EL34s or 6L6s on either channel (stereo 50W/50W) and it can run bridged. But you...
