i was thinking of getting an epiphone valve standard as my first tube amp, and am questioning whether it would be loud enough to compete with a drummer for any jam sessions that i may have with friends. If it wasn't would i be able to get the valve junior cab and plug the standard into it? and will it make it any louder??

thanks in advance
yep. My valve junior is louder than my 100 watt Marshall SS.
