As I’ve freely admitted in this thread, I didn’t get a chance to test drive one of these Cambridge50 amps before ordering it. I have also stated in this thread that I am definitely looking for this to be a gigging amp. So your perception of the amp “sounding small” is duly noted. If that turns out to be the case, then I will return it to GC. There are several considerations that still make me hopeful, however. To begin with, your assessment that the amp was not gig-able you qualified with the statement “not with a band.” My application for the Cambridge50 is not within the context of a band. I'm a solo performer, and I’d be playing to audiences of 100 or less in an outdoor setting, like a patio or to a group of RV campers at a state park. I am looking for an amp that’s comparable in output to my Fishman Loudbox Mini. I’m looking to run my vocals and acoustic/electric guitar through my Fishman LBM, and my tele into the Cambridge50. Earlier in this thread, @scattitude said that he bought the Cambridge50 as a “lightweight, all-in-one, grab-and-go amp for rehearsals, jam sessions and non-boutique-dependent gigs. It can get plenty loud and for those purposes, it is an inexpensive, quality product that does the job.” So, I’m reading two very different assessments here. No offense to you, but I’m hoping I wind up agreeing with scattitude’s assessment. Furthermore, you referred to the fact that it runs off an AC adapter into a DC 19V “wall wart” as an indication that “it doesn’t seem made for louder volumes.” That doesn’t track with my experiences. Now I admit again that I haven’t tried the Cambridge50, so I’m not trying to make hard and fast pronouncements. At the same time, I’ve owned and gigged with two amps that had DCV/AC adapters. In neither case did the “wall wart” equate to less output. One was a Crate TX50D “Limo” and the other a Fishman Loudbox Mini Charge. I gigged the Crate Limo for 10 years, and the Fishman LBMC replaced the Crate, and I’ve gigged it for a year. Volume was never an issue; I never had to crank either amp. And Vox has been using these AC adapter (DC10V) cords for a lot of their latest offerings, including the MV50 heads. I was very interested in the MV50s when they first came out, and I’ve read most every TDPRI thread I could find on them. I don’t recall anyone saying that those amps couldn’t get loud because of that cord. I have test driven Vox’ Mini Super Beetle, and that mini stack by itself wasn’t loud enough to gig with. But that’s because the 8 ohm speaker in the cab yields 25 watts, not 50. I don’t think it was the fault of the “wall wart.” So, like I said, I’m hoping the Cambridge50 will work for the gigging situations/venues I have in mind. But if it truly doesn’t cut it, I will return it.
