    Hello All,

    What’s a good Warwick combo amp? I just need it for home use.

    Thanks

    Shaun

    I was thinking about the BC80 combo.

    Hi Shaun,

    For home use only I'd rather go for the BC 40
    Much lighter and the 'compressor' on the 80 is actually a limiter with no controls.

    Yes, they are very decent. Especially for their low price.

    Is it pretty loud and clean sounding for a practice amp?

    Well I just received my BC80 today. I bought it on line from Guitar Center. They had an amazing deal so I picked one up. After unpacking it, it looks amazing. Very clean looking. So I got my Katana out plugged her in feeling very excited. I flicked the switch to the on position and...... nothing!!!! My excitement level fell through the floor. The red comp light is on all the time. I tried many different things and it’s a no go. Guitar Center is going to be receiving a very angry call tomorrow.

    I would try to stay calm, anger won't help. Although they probably deserve to hear some "french".

    Only good thing is guitar center has I think a 45 day exchange policy. Should be no issues except for the waiting.

    So after calling and speaking with them they are going to replace it. I got them to expedite the shipping. So they are doing an overnight air shipment for me. It should arrive tomorrow. That’s pretty cool.

    I am here to report good news. The amp arrived safely. I am really liking this amp. Very crisp and clean sounding. You can really crank it without it distorting. I am very pleased with the combo.
