Hi,

I'm thinking about buying a new amp so I would like to have some advice from some experienced players.

The main genre I'll be playing is rock.
I'd like to use it in combination with my Boss OS2 pedal.
I'll be playing shows for 300 people max.

For what I've read so far, is that a 30-50 watt tube combo amplifier, would serve me best.
Would a Laney VC30 - 212 be a good one for me?

I would really appreciate it if you'd give me a hand on this, because I really don't know that much about amplifiers.

Grtz

you could get a bugera combo that could easily do a small to medium gig

Peavey Classic 30 is also well regarded. Plenty of options out there though.

I think the Vox AC30VR would be worth a look. Your Boss OD pedal would probably push it quite nicely. I was seriously considering it before I acquired my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe from a family member. Speaking of Fender amps, you could try and find a new or used 2x12 or 4x10 Hot Rod Deville. They sound fantastic.

what's your budget?

i'd be wary of a 2x12 combo as that's going to be extremely heavy (as in weight/mass). plus that laney really could use a speaker upgrade and buying two speakers is reasonably expensive.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

No offence, but the OS2 is a pretty crappy pedal...you're best forgetting about that entirely when it comes to choosing an amp.
Actually called Mark!

Budget's about 400-500 euro. Weight is not a problem, my fellow band members will be kind enough to give me a hand :p

Yeah well, I bought it only recently and I don't want to dump it yet. And besides, I think it's not that bad

traynor ycv50b on thomann?

that's my suggestion for everything, lol, but it's pretty good value. just a shame you didn't think of it sooner, a while back it was about 100 euro cheaper.

well it depends. where are you playing? depending on the side of the PA you could use a 10 watt. it really depends.

if your going to be playing 300 people shows on the reg, you cannot be sure where you wil lbe playing you most poeple like to be prepared for a lot of things depending on thier playing style and music.

yes, in general, upwards of 50 watts of anything should cover you for almost any show as long as there is a decent sound guy and a decent PA.

what is your budget? thats the #1 limiting factor.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.
