I bought two beginners in September 2005 on Ebay pice 185 (excluding postage: count 50).
T they use the weekend that followed, back vocals + sax in concert with my band (rock / blues / funk).
They are powerful enough to "contrebattre" effectively our drummer who types like a mule !!... : O)
Other members of the groups are not left behind in terms of volume ... Me on a VS265, the other guitarist on a Blues Deluxe.
The sound is exactly what I expected. Powerful, Fidler, round, prcis with correctors Tone trs effective.
I feared that low are a little feeble, and not at all!
I play in groups, but also in service on its own backing tracks. The sound is good enough that I use both speakers broadcast faade. (+ Playback resume my Vibrochamp)
Or the price I bought them, I do not regret this purchase.
