Would you say that its worth lugging around if you got a really good deal on it? I know 112 pounds is a lot for an amp and a lot of people can't lift that much (in my experience) but do you think thats too much? I know I can lift that much but it would be a struggle of course. The amp I am talking about does have wheels to role it on so that would make it better? Anyways what do you think?

...a 112 pound amp?? If it sounded good enough to lug around maybe it's worth it.

ahh.

bass amps are too heavy, and they need more wattage than guitar amps. it sucks really.
but it should be fine if it has wheels, and it sounds good.

if it's 112lbs, i'm guessing it's tube in which case: yes, it's worth it. just make sure the wheels are good and sturdy, you'll be using those alot. avoid stairs.

it sounds better than any other amp I have tried before (besides Ampeg).

One other bad thing about it though is that you can not add a cab to it so that sort of sucks.

Well if you want to ask this question go and ask anyone who owns an ENGL 4x12 cab.. thats 110 pounds.. Or if you want to go further ask someone who owns an oversized ENGL 4x12 cab... those weigh 138 pounds.. Then of course you have to worry about the head..

Well it does not sound heavenly if thats what your saying but its pretty good sounding.

Do you think I would ever need to put a cab on this thing? Would that ever be really needed?

#21
Man, go for it. If you need a cab you could probably mod it, I'd take it to a pro. I have a halfstack, it's about 150-160 lbs, I have it as a slave to my combo though, which adds another 60lbs, I take it piece by piece though.

Make sure you have a friend help you with stairs, and if it has wheels, roll it when you can, and watch your back, lift with your legs.

My mate has a fender reverb 4-12inch.... It weights about 50kg, so about 120 pounds..... We had to carry it up 3 flights of stairs....

Yes. I would only haul an amp that heavy around if it sounded divine. For example, the Diezel Herbert. It's a very heavy amp, but it's the best amp I've ever played in my life. I don't have one, only because I cannot dream to afford one. It's like $4000-4500 US if you're curious.

Yea don't worry I am pretty strong and big. I honestly think I could lift that by myself if I had to but about that whole modding thing. How might that work? Can it really be done because if so that would be pretty relieving.

If I had an 112 lb amp I'd name it Ugly Betty.

...In all seriousness, don't try lugging it around, just roll it on its wheels.
I'm guessing it's pretty powerful if it weighs that much.
My 75w only weighs like 20 (I think.)


Its pretty sexy really

and NO OFFENSE but you are a girl and I don't think a girl would like that heavy of anything she had to move around anyway

and seriously NO OFFENSE to what I just said

lol none taken, if I were that serious about playing electric guitar (I'm more of an acoustic chick) I would pay some of my friends to do it.
Or hope they'd do it as a favor

600 watts? Are you sure you need that much? I just saw some of your old posts and from what I can make out, you've only been playing for only like 2-3 months, but whatever.

<checks out link>

Oooh, that amp...have you tried it yet? Do you like it? Do you think it's worth it? Your opinion above others mens.

My mate was a roadie for the Drugs for a while (australian band, now split up) and when loading up for his first tour with them they were talking him through what gear they had to load.

"We call this one the cvnt" it was explained
"Why" he asked?
"Just try and lift it"
(Tries to lift amp)
"Fvcking Cvnt!!!"
"Yeah That's why"

turn it into a head, and a seperate cab, then it would n't be quite so bad to lift. and get a strong mate, who doesn't mind a bit of lifting
