  • Amp advice

    Ok so I am going to get a td-20 module. Hart dynamics kit, Roland Cymbals. Now I need an amp to power it all. I live in an apartment but I also plan to use it in band rehearsals and I also plan to use it in smaller venues with out an in house PA. I checked out a simmons any other suggestions?

    Use the search engine. It's been discussed quite a bit on the forum and there are lots of threads and posts.

    One other suggestion: use the search engine. And then if you think about it, you can use the search engine, after you use the search engine.

    Oh and another thing. Use the search engine.

      I would go to the music store and hop on a td-20 kit and ask the sales person to have a couple of amps ready for you to try out. I would make sure the amp has a crisp sound and can handle bottom end. Also one that can go fairly loud for when you do gigs without a P.A.

          I'm occasionally using a KC-550 for home practice without headphones. I am less than thrilled with the sound from my TD-6V. But our local Guitar Center has one hooked up to all their demo e-kits and the TD-20 sounds excelllent through this amp and so did the Dtextreme III. Just excellent.

          Food for thought...

            Qsc

            I use a qsc 15" sub and 122 top. I tried every speaker in GC with my td-9 and thought this sounded the most like studio monitors. The jbl prx serires was second. The qsc setup cost me $1700.00 .

            I have seen the mackie 450's now at $500. You could add a used mackie sub for $500 and that would be quite good.

            I have never got enough bottom end from any speaker with out a sub,even for small cafes.
