I reckon ac15 too, and it would be well under your budget. I’ve been playing mine a bit more for the last few days after taking the back off to find a rattle, and it is a very gratifying amp.

Personal taste and all that, but from all of my own experience with combo's I would say an AC15 ticks so many boxes. Extremely versatile too, not to mention being loud enough to gig with.

What are you playing your ax8 through? Do you have any other amps at the moment? What guitars have you currently got?

the paired blues sound magnificent.


It’s the moving the amp part that intimidates me with this. More grab-and-hernia than grab-and-go.


Yep i hear ya.
Mind you, having gigged with my vox the other night ...the 15 watt is a bastard mainly because it has one handle . the ac30 has two handles. which goes a long way in terms of comfort and transport.

or get an amp trolley like ben uses.


It’s way more manageable than the AC15 Heritage I had. Using both handles makes way less awkward too.

Just through the PA and I monitor it through a foldback. I’ve got no actual guitar amps. It’s unlikely but if the AX8 was to shit itself I’d like to just go to the van and grab a combo and finish the night with. And I suppose use until the 8 gets fixed. A clean amp with a pedal or two would work but I’ve been down that rabbit hole!

I’ve just got the LP, Axis, a Jem which doesn’t play out much and the JP12 which is on trade Me.

I seen'd it. Looks bloody heavy though, nothing some wheels can't fix but. How much?


I’m asking $1600 on Facebook but could potentially slip on my grey, zip-up loafers and sharpen my pencil
