Post an actual link like this...

First off what styles of music do you play?

If your looking for a loud amp that goes over drums, I would look into a few used tube amps.
But I have no experiance with the one in your link...

i think it would get over drums, but not significantly. Youd still be struggling, and the cleans would probably break up and you couldnt get a real good clean sounds out of it.

How about something like the Crate V-18. i think 18 tube watts is loud enuff. save up a little more and u could get a Peavey Valveking, which is 50w, more than loud enuff.

this is a 65w

lol, i dont think that 18W of tube could do it, the valveking would be great. Thatd do the job easily.

its 65W solid state, 50W tube/valve, what ever you want to call it, is much louder.

Yes, but when it comes to tube amps, you don't need nearly as much wattage. A 20w solid state amp is not as loud as a 20w tube amp.

Do you need to get over the drums clean, or is overdriven ok?

My son has the V16, and it gets over drums no problem. It could get over a reasonable drummer clean. I play the drums like a drunken gorilla, and I have to ask him to turn the amp down.

Significantly better tone than Crate's Flexwave series, too.

You Don't Need 100W.

Yeah but it is 65 watts of SOLID STATE.

18 watts of tube > 65 watts of solid state

For under 400 try looking at Vox amps. They have some good stuff for less than 400. Also if you have a guitar center around it's always a good idea to try the amp out if you can.
