I am planning on buying a Kustom Defender 5H once I sell some other gear.. would it be loud enough to gig with? I mean, obviously it'd have to be miced but for an unmiced gig would it be enough?
Well it depends on the area of playing unmiced. But out of curiosity when will you ever be playing unmiced
see, I don't know about that, but my friend gigged with his tiny Line 6 Spider and he said it was ok
depends on your drummer. If you have king kong for one, id get a bigger amp. If your gonna play jazz tunes with a drummer using paint brushes your fine.
I guess the point is wether or not I should keep my ok-sounding Fender Frontman and sell other stuff to get this, or sell the Fender and get this (or something else) or what... help!
You don't want to rely on a 5watt amp for gigs. Even if it's normally loud enough, there will probably come a time soon when there are no mics to hand or you suddenly need more clean headroom or you end up playing a much bigger gig than expected. I'd definately recomment 15watts, probably more.
Ok, so what amp can i get for around $200 with a good crunchy sound?
