I recently started to jam with a small band and I have a Roland micro cube atm(10w). If i cranked it all the way up it could somewhat cover up the drummer, but I'm debating whether if I need a new amp or not. Also, the bassist had a 100w amp, I think my Roland might get devoured.

Should I replace my Roland? and if i do, do you guys have any reccomendations for a practice/garage band amp? Not too sure if we are doing any performances, though.

Btw, we play punk/hard rock and some metal. I would like to spend as little as possible for the new amp, but I would spend more if the amp is definetely worth it; i have up to $400 or more to spend.

even 15 will do for gigs

edit: for 400 bucks id say get a Peavey valveking combo plus an OD pedal. a ts-9 of some sort. youll have no trouble getting all those genre/tones out of it especially with the added od.

15 watts will not be loud enough for a real gig that doesnt include your bedroom.
if its a bar, you need more volume.

I think that for a gig you need atleast 30w, if you crank 15w amp too loud it will be damaged... I played one gig with my own roland 34w roland cube and it worked great

id suggest a 100 watt marshall.



Don't listen to this guy. He's probably talking about a Marshall MG. You will need a decent valve amp between 15-30 watts. Don't worry about your bass players wattage, as the low frequency of bass guitars has to be amplified more to be able to compliment the more cutting sound of a guitar. You'd get away with 50w no problem even if your bass player had a 300w Ampeg bass amp.

Your budget says you want to spend at least $400. Does that mean you want a more expensive amp? If so, look for something like a B-52, Peavey Valveking, or maybe a used Marshall valve combo.

And remeber:

You don't need a half-stack.

You don't need 100 watts.

Happy shopping.

Oh and by the way, the Micro Cube is actually 2 watts. It might take in 10 watts, but it puts out 2 watts.

Best suggestion for hard rock/metal on $400 or so. You could go with the Digitech Bad Monkey OD for about half the price of the Ibanez, too.

30 watts solid state is nothing compared to a 15 watt tube.
15 watts is plenty for a bar/club and will easily get over a drummer.
but like i said before Peavey VK Plus an OD is your best bet.
