well i wanted a classic 30 and i was told it was good enough for gigs but i read that 20-30 wtts tube is good for recording band practise and 30-50 is good for gigs.... does this mean i will always have to have my amp cranked right up at gigs?

I have an Ashton VP30, which I have only at around 1 oclock, and its fine for getting over a full band. You want your tube amp to be cranked anyway.

Keep in mind that if it is a big gig, they'll most likely have a PA system there as well, so you don't really need to worry so much on volume.

if its cranked i wont be able to get cleans though right?

would there be any benifits to having a 212 or 412 and the 30 watt head instead of the combo? or can you hook a cab into this combo?

Don't quote me on this, so to speak, but I believe it's possible to run a combo into a cab.

Depends on the amount of headroom your amp has personally. You can replace the tubes with ones designed to get the maximum amount of headroom out of your amp. I find that my laney is fine for staying clean long enough for gig level volumes, otherwise, that's what PA is for.

It's fine for cleans. Bloc Party played at Reading using Hot Rod Deluxes, and alot of their stuff was clean.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Positive. There were four of them, each saying 'Fender - Deluxe' on the frontplate.

30W into a single 12 should be lots of fun at home. The combo has 8 and 16 ohm outputs, the head is only 16. If you can afford it, buy the combo for practice use, and use it through a cab for big gigs where volume becomes an issue.

Edit - here, you might want to have a read of the classic 30 owner's manual

30W is plenty for gigs. I've never had to have my amp over half volume at a gig, including doing a room with 300 capacity un-mic'ed. You won't have to worry.
