Okay GG&A, I need a bit of help on deciding on my new amp. My current is a worn out soild state used piece of crap, it's time to go TUBE!

First thing, and I'm sure what the answer is going to be already, but- should I get a combo amp, or a half stack? Before you guys fly off the handle, it's a 30 watt amp, I'm not aiming for anything huge here. I'll be gigging every so often with it, but it also needs to be suitable for practices, with a band, and solo.

I was thinking the Peavey Classic 30, as the option for either the stack with a 2/12" Cab, or the combo with a 12".

Secondly- I'll be replacing the speakers in either of the situations. I'm looking for the classic British Roar, so I was thinking "The Governor" by Eminence, it sounds pretty amazing.

Help?... Views?.... Opinions?....
Sex? ( just kidding)

If you're going british then maybe a peavey delta blues would be better, it's a good imitation of a AC30 I've heard.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

You hit it spot on with the C30 + Speaker change.

people with large sig's are clearly compensating for something.

To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

Do you think the combo or half stack would be better suited? A lot of places around where I am don't have great P.A.'s

Even if you did need the volume from the half stack and used it, you would kill the people upfront and the people in the back would still have hard time hearing you. Not being mic'd sucks.

So you think the combo is the better idea?
Could it stand up to a drummer when it was unmic'd? (in practice)
This is my first tube, sorry if these questions seem kinda dumb

If you're worried about volume and sound dispersion, go for the 50 watt version with the extra speakers.

I just called up a couple of my buddies, apparently I was wrong. A few of the "major" places around us have PA's, so I don't think I gotta worry, I should be good with the classic 30, I'll go out and find one and see how it really handles at the louder volumes.
Also, would anyone recommend changing the stock tubes that come with the C30?
#12
I thought the new ones came with good tubes (atleast power tubes).
But, if you get an older one, you may have to change them out.
