Leaning heavily towards either an HT-40 or HT-60. Looking to gig with it. Currently drummer is on an E-kit so we can control his volume, but we might do some shows eventually with his acoustic kit and he's LOUD. Can the 40 keep up? In most of those situations, there will likely be a house PA so we'll mic it out or direct out so maybe it doesn't matter.

Also, I can get the HT-40 plus a 112 extension cabinet for slightly less than the HT-60. My thought was perhaps leaving the cab at the practice area location would make transporting the lighter HT-40 home easier. Although it was be nice to have the HT-60 to have a little more oomph as well as the potential to stick a 212 underneath it if we were to play larger venues.

Any other pros/cons to the HT-40 & 112 vs. the HT-60?

Finally, how does the direct out on the HT Venues sound, or is simply better to mike it?

I'd definitely go with the 60, not cause of volume (the 40 will be loud enough) but simply cause with an extra channel and several extra modes it will be much more versatile and you will have to spend less time fiddling with knobs between songs if you have the extra channel which is already set up...

It would be plenty. I know a guy who gigs with a HT20 combo, and it sounds great. So you'll be fine. Getting the 60, you get the extra channel and features. If you've got the money, go for the 60.

Yeah, the third channel on the 60 is appealing. Might pull the trigger on the 112 extension cab anyway.

Don't expect anything amazing from the HT Venue series, they're not terrible or anything, but they certainly left something to be desired for me. Also, it broke after about a month of having it from brand new.

I've got a 40W amp, turning up to be heard over a drummer pushes it to the limit, I presume its due to the amount of Bass and Gain I use, depends on your EQ really

Is it a valve amp?
If so then that's the first time I've ever heard someone say that.

yeah, I only know its pushed to the limit 'cause its got a built in VU meter so I know how hard the tubes are working. If I didn't have this, I'd have not idea and would probs have driven it much harder without a thought.
