alright, so i'm getting a peavey backstage 30 watt amp for Christmas, and i have a question.

will it be loud enough to be heard over drums? i don't know if it was just me, but it seemed pretty big and loud for 30 watts.

no, the peavey bandit 112 or peavey vypyr 75 will be enough.
They are $300 each. I'd much rather have one of those.

Great for practice even for more advanced players.
Sure beats lugging about my 412 for practice.
Plenty of volume.

edit: thats why they call it backstage. Its not for the stage. lol

Its fine for practicing tho.

There's a reason why they call it Backstage you know.

However I could get above my drummer (who was pretty loud) with a 15w Marshall MG. You should be fine but I wouldn't expect it to sound particularly amazing... I know the MG didn't.

My guitarist has gotten over me with 15w SS in a jam (I drum). 30w SS will do it but it'll sound like crap. Especially that amp. What's your budget?

I agree with Iloveguitar
the amp u r getting is known as the peavy backstage
use this amp for practice and very small venues

it's already bought.

the budget wasn't really high. we just scored a really good deal at a pawn shop for it for about $50.

Oh, in that case, you'll be alright. 50 is a good deal


we've seen the same amp online for at least $150, sometimes more.

pricetag said $60. the pawnshop owner got mad when we were buying it and said it was mismarked. we managed to get him down to $50.

if amps weren't so expensive, i would've probably got something MUCH bigger.

i don't plan on playing any big places right now, just a small band practice.

i have a somewhat related question now.

what are the differences between tube amps and solid state amps?
