ok so for Christmasm I've been going back and forward on an amp and it's come down to these 2 options for me.

Marshall MA 50w Head - http://www.guitar.co.uk/amplifiers/electric/2896-marshall_ma50h_50w_all_valve_head

Plus a laney Cab - http://www.guitar.co.uk/amplifiers/electric/2744-laney_gs212ie_extension_cabinet

OR

The Marshall ma 100 watt combo - http://www.guitar.co.uk/amplifiers/electric/2897-marshall_ma100c_100w_all_valve_combo

I've heard, that the only difference between the MA's is the wattage and obviously the number of speakers for the combo's.
So it comes down to 2 questions for me.

Do you guys think I need 100 watts to be heard over my drummer?
and,
which has better speakers, the laney Cab or the Marshall combo?

100 watts of Marshall valve amplification is loud enough to be heard over all the drummers in the world, playing at the same time. That's obviously an exageration, but a 50watt valve amp will be more than enough to be heard over a drummer.

There will be distinct tonal differences between a 50 watt head and a 100 watt combo.

First the combo will have significantly more headroom;therefore the head will breakup much sooner than the combo.

Also, I'm assuming that the combo is open back and the cab is closed back. If this is true then the combo is going to have less bass response than a cab.


Just a couple things to consider.

Yeah thanks guys I think I'm going to go with the Head + Cab idea.
