if i were to play a gig in a bar or something a little larger than that how many watts would i need my amp to be?
tube wise... probably a 50 would be overkill. SS wise though, probably anything around 75 would probably work. 2X12 preferably. Maybe a half stack if its a large bar. But im just guessing at the size.
If you are miked, then it doesn't really matter. But my friend gets by fine with a 50 watt. So I ,personally, would get something 50+ watts.
I played with a fender 50 watt half-stack and it was more than enough
My combo is 30 watts and it's more than enough.
