Ok, so I need an upgrade from my 15 watt practice amp, and was thinking about the Acoustic B100 100 watt amp. I dont play in a band yet because I need an amp upgrade 1st, so will 100 watts get me above drums, guitar and possibly a singer? I'd probably be playing rock music, although I like funk as well.

Thanks!!!

Only just. I would strongly recommend going for at least 200 watts to properly get above a drummer.

it depends. for most bands 100 watts would be enough to set in with drums and guitar. i use a 540 watt amp and its just loud enough without distorting when playing with my band. we play extremely loud though.

hes playing against a drummer not a boeing 747.

as long as the drummer and the rest of the crew dont play stupidly loud youll be fine.

I own the 200 watt version of these amps and they're very nice. I have to imagine if the 200 watt is good, the 100 watt should be good as well.

watts don't really correlate with volume as much as people think it does by the way. i've heard 100 watt bass amps that were louder than 200 watt bass amps.

Wattage does not equal volume, and it all depends on the drummer, and how loud the guitars are playing. Generally speaking 100w might do for practice with the band, but you'd want around 200w or more if you plan on gigging at all. I suggest you look at the Acoustic B200, its not too expensive for a 200w amp and should give you what you need.

An acoustic amp could refer to an amp intended for use with acoustic bass guitars, but in this case, Acoustic is the brand of amplifier.

100w should be enough for practice and moderately sized gig.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

the 100 watt acoustic would work BUT i would recommend the acoustic b200 just because it is a more versatile amp in what you get for the price and would be good for gigs as well.

200 watts may not be any louder than 100 watts. Each company have the own method to rate the wattage, and some are quite generous in their calculation. How loud an amp can sound are perceived more on the volume of the cabs. The more speakers a cab have, the more air it can pushes out. Don't just based your purchase solely on the watts, but how efficient the amp and cabs are.
