Th350 v Streamline 900 v VT500

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,
So I've been searching for an amp to pair with my barefaced compact for small to medium gigs, and have found good prices on three of these amps. There's obviously a massive gap between the power outputs of these amps, but from what I've heard, the compact is extremely sensitive. Can anyone with the compact or a similar small barefaced cab give some input here? What amp pairs best with your cab?
Thanks
Mossie

I've just posted about my Barefaced cabs with my new Tecamp amp. I see this isn't on your list above but I highly recommend checking one out or looking at the Eich amps which are the new version. Seriously cracking piece of kit and sings with my cab!

Yes it's more than enough for me. I play in a five piece band with a loud drummer and two guitarists using 4*12 Marshall stacks. I get asked to turn down! Ha ha!

I mainly use a TH500 with my Super Compacts, so I'd suggest the TH350 from your list. Unless you want to sound like Mark King, these amps are perfect.

I've read read that the Streamliner has a very bass heavy tone. That wouldn't be for me in a million years. I don't know the VT500 at all, so can't comment there.

Yeah, but you can always just turn down the bass knob!

Any of the three will be fine with a Compact volume-wise (unless you need huuuuge output, like big big rooms/outdoors without PA support output), it's more a question of your tone goals. I've used a Streamliner and a TH500 with a Compact, and they're different beasts. The Stl is indeed big and warm and valvey, I cut the bottom end to about nine o'clock and had a great sound, the TH I didn't like so much tho many here do. I moved from the Stl to a Magellan, and find that's much more versatile for my needs in a function band. The fact that the Magellan's 800w is pretty academic: it's just got plenty of oomph (steering clear of the contentious 'heft' word here :) ) but as I said, all three will be fine.

Best? Your call, tone-wise...
