Me being very blunt and unforgiving; the VK is a pile of crap IMO.
I could go into the good points and my entire argument on the VK, but im sick of repeating it
Anyway, it doesn't have the gain for what you want.
Not too knowledgeable on high gain amps, look into Randalls or used.

It's an alright amp. It wasn't made to appeal to the younger crowd, that's why a lot of these dumb kids are disappointed with the thing.

If you're gigging for 700 people you are GOING to be put through the PA.
50 watts is overkill, however, Randall RG50TC, I cant be arsed looking up prices for you because you don't appear that appreciative of UGs advice.

Generalize much? It was made to be a budget valve amp, end of.

700 people isn't that much, my friend's amp handled it fine and it's a 20w 2x 6V6 amp with a 1x15 cab, my VJ had to be micd though. The other bands coped fine. The audience was more like 900 too....

I'm just comparing this to my school hall, if say about 1000 people fit in there and i just cranked my amp, it'd echo and sound crap in a band situation, but then again school gyms aren't notorious for there good sound distribution...
#15
That's the context I played in, 900-1000 people were in there, and the band sounded fine...

Wow, I honestly wouldn't of thought so, but how about from the back of the room?
We've had little school band things at our school hall but they were put through the PA.

We were at the far end, it's a basketball court size, at one far end, on a stage. One drummer, two guitarists, a bassist/vocalist. There was a good amount of reverb, but only my VJ and Vocalist used a mic. The other guitarist used a 20w 1x15 6V6 amp, the drummer was totally acoustic with a Maple Yamaha kit. The mix was a bit off because the sound 'guy' didn't bother to compensate for my OD pedal, so I was very loud, although the other guy turned up his amp halfway through, and the singer was a bit quiet, but again sound check problems, seeing as we didn't get a good soundcheck.
