Would 60 solid state watts be enough to play in a garage band and smaller gigs? Like over the drums, bassist's amp, vocalist, ect...?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

i would think it would cause i use a 15 watt ss and i get heard over my drummer fine and that's 4x the wattage

Yes to practice, and you can always mic it into the PA for shows.
I highly recommend that everyone interested in making money online join this site.

no but a 15watt tube is


lol ok i won't be mean. it should be enough. i went over with 30w solid state. but it wouldn't be a decent tone. solid state gets mushy when its higher volume. if u can buy 60w solid state, u'd rather get 15w tube. it can get louder, with better tone at the loudness.

play the damn thing and see yourself. 9 times out of 10, an amp shouldn't be based on it's wattage.
That's what she said

Yeah, the standard rule is that you'll need at least 50w solid state. Of course it's negligable once you start mic'ing things up. I saw someone play a festival (Reading) with a Cube 30.

Ah, but not four times as loud. Not even twice as loud.

Dude, if you already have the capo just put it behind the nut and it lowers everything.

Thanks guys. I've looking into buying a Cube 60, but I still want to do a little more research. I played one at Sam Ash today and I rather like the tones but I didn't get a chance to really crank it.
