so i was thinking about getting a peavey 212 amp soon. the only concern is that its gonna be too loud for just playing in my room. i dont want to go too small because if I do play with other people i want to be heard but most of my playing is in my room. i just dont want to have to go out a get a bigger amp if i play gigs. can anyone let me know if this is the right amp or do i need to go smaller.

212s, regardless of if they are tube or solid, are very loud. You might want to consider getting a 112 instead.

This amp is LOUD. I'd say get a 112, its a bit quieter and cheaper too. The 212 is overkill for bedroom, with only a chance for gigging.

You can always get a 112 combo for your room playing and eventually buy an extension cabinet if you're going to play gigs. 112 combos are usually loud enough to play band practices.

My thoughts exactly.

Ever heard of the volume knob, guy?

get a good combo, you can still def gig with a good combo and its a hell of alot easier to carrier around then a tubed halfstack!

and by peavy 212? is it the peavy valveking 212 your talking about? because that seems like a good amp for the price!

i would not get a solid state peavy like the blazer or rage... (little amps) they blow...

I have a Randall RG200 and it plays wonderful in my opinion, 200w packs a fine punch for local bars/clubs/and small gigs that i do...

most of my playing is in my room to

i wouldnt go under 100 watts tho... just in my opinon...
