You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

it's a 15 watt tube amp and a 5 watt tube amp can be heard over drums, if you feel it is abit week you could always mic it up

It'd have to be a really quiet drummer. I find that anything under 10 watts isn't heard with drums. 15 watts is a good size.

5 watts can barely get over a drummer, and you stand zero chance of overpowering a full band with it. Not to mention anything under 15 watts probably won't even give you cleans at gigging volumes. The amps you mentioned would be decent, but honestly I don't really know what the market is like where you're located.

I have a 15W matchless and it stays clean almost as loud a my 50W engl. the design of the amp will determine its break up as well as the wattage. although i am talking about a matchless and not a blackheart.

If you have a PA system, you may want to get a line 6 pod, very cost effective and sounds great, and it will have more versatility than any amp.

Then you can move onto a nice tube amp when your band turns pro

bugera V22 is a great amp for clasic rock , and if you go used, some V55 are sold for 250-350

noway you could gig with 15 watt

and for 300 euros you aint gunna buy an amp you'll wanna play for 10 years
but the bugera v22 might be a good idea

and i would recommend the flextone

You have your own gymnasium? Anyways, a 50-60w SS would be cheaper. Maybe a cube or similar.
