    I have a Music Man 2x10 130 watt combo (early good one) and am thinking about selling and will post it where it belongs if I do so..in excellent shape....

    BUT...the question is how many of you guys actually can or do use 130 watts??

    I have a 65 watter 2x10 as well and while I used the 130 outdoors at times in the past for street festivals etc...and this was before I got the 65'er...the 65 is usually plenty for outdoor gigs as well, even without being mic'd.

    What do you guys suggest? I don't think I have ever had this 130 turned full up..at about 4 of 5 it is ear splitting...

    Some of the modern SS amps make incredibly good practice amps, and I'm actually considering trying one as an "iffy" gigging amp, IE playing low calibur place or in an unknown environment with not much riding on the show. I honestly prefer my little 15w vox DA to my marshall JTM , I've already gotten bored with the effects, but the amp models rule, and behave very tube like, extremely dynamic, and not canned like most L6's I've tried, the DA, a crybaby , and at times a hint of delay and I'm very happy. Only fault I have with it is you can only store two presets.

    it's an early one with the better inverter? converter? whatever they are, they are the good ones (early) and bad ones (later) and I make sure I get the early good ones.

    I believe your amp is SS in the pre-amp and tube in the power.Thats what all mine were.But this was 30 years ago.
