Playing live with an MC50

Postby Winterland » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:38 pm

I was wondering if anyone plays gigs with an MC50. Are they loud enough for a decent size bar?

Plenty loud for me! I have it halfway cranked with a full-on SMS classic. It's fine.

Nice..I picked one up and was having buyers remorse. I have a MC 2100 but its heavy and loud. I am
getting old and looking for short cuts. Should have it set up by next week.

Thanks for your input

I have an mc50/sms, I match it with a 2x12 or 1x12 with D120's. I can't imagine needing anything louder. At that point I'd mic it to the PA.

I will be loud enough if its working properly. It should put out close to 70 watts.

Nice work getting a MC50. The buyer's remorse will leave if it hasn't already and you're going to be left with an awesome amp. :cool: I use half of a MC250 and it's has plenty of power.
