How big amp do i need to quite easy overvoice just the drums without too big risk of blowing the speakers?
is it much to ask for answers like "oh maybe x many x" speakers would propably do the job" or am i very noobish if i ask ya so?

a 50w solid state or 20-30w valve will more than cope with it at about 50% volume. unless you're playing serious gigs (which i assume you're not given the question) you'll not need more than that
The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Learn theory
Practice better
Practice more

Maybe 50-75 Watts worth of power

Amounts of speakers, i think, dont change the volume alot.

80 million watts and fourteen thousand speakers in the back of a mac truck.

That is the only way.


Seriously though - 60-80w should do you in a 2x12. It might even be more than you need, depending on how hard the drummer hits his kit.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

50 watt solid state
20 watts tube
they can be smaller if it's just you and the drummer, but if theres another guitarist, or a bassist, youll get muddy really easily

Depends, tube amps go much louder at low Wattage.
Current gear:
Carvin CT6M
TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s
Laney Ironheart 60w tube amp

hmm. lets see, he hits it as hard as a jazz drummer...
no just kidding im not even in a band. but i know a really good drummer.
we havent got any music classes in school yet this year by some reason so i have never played with him. and i dont know where he live.
i guess my squier sp 10 aint enough. and i think it's blown.
but would maybe this be okay?

30W might be cutting it a bit close. I'd go with a 50 or 60, personally.

This thread's title just begs for sarcastic remarks.

You'd be surprised at how little you need if you're going for tubes.
