ok so im joining a band and I need a really loud amp. Im not to worried about the amp sound itself as for now i'll be using a digitech rp90 for most of my tones. Also my budget is really thin ($300) . so doing an online search I found these :

Behringer GMX212 2 x 60-Watt Stereo Guitar Amplifier

Raven RG100 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier

My question is, what is the difference between between a 100W 2x12 and a 2x60W(per side) ?
#2
the difference is 20 watts i believe.

but seriously, those options are pretty dank.

what part of earth are you on? nearest major city...

what tones are you going after?

look used if you can, the end results can be much better.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

The amp that you choose will change the tone of your digitech.

so your saying the Beringer is actually a 120 watt amp ? why the distinction then of a 2x60W per sides ?

used might be an option...
and of course the amp will change my digitech tone only if im not careful ( not exactly my first rodeo in this dept. ) but thats what thirty day return policy's are for

Where I come from, dank is a good thing. I.E. "Dank buds brah"

We still don't know what kind of tones you are after. Can we get some bands, and specific songs even?

I don't think specific bands or songs are necessary, he seems to be pretty dead set on using that pedal to achive all those killer tones he's been dreaming about... As for amp, why not just get a power amp and a cab instead of a solid state amp that you're not even going to utilize?

i think it's more like 2, 60 watts amps. does not seem like 120 watts.

and in any case, at this price level, any high watt, solid state amp is going to have
cheesy speakers.
so pushing max volumes will distort/fizz the amp's tone.

if possible, like said already, i really suggest used.

barring that, at this price, for shear volume,
i'd consider a randall solid state combo.

excuse me ?
What I am trying to say, is that Carvin sounds like a hell of a deal. I would personally look for things to sell, cut corners on, or any small jobs to do for some extra cash so you can afford that amp and some cheaper cabinet.

your welcome.

it's a steal and you wouldn't need that pedal ever again.

I wonder if he is going to get the Carvin and put up with not having a cab for a month or two...
