I recently purchased a Kustom 30 watt amp. Will this amp be good enough for band prac, and small time gigs?
#2
is it tube or solid state?

30W might be good for small places like pubs, I actually did gigs in places like that with a 15w a few times for space reasons and it worked ok. Plus i remember Kustom from using some cabs and mixers way back and I remember it as a probably generic company soundwise, but quite reliable so I'd say you are doing fine. Just make sure to have a more powerfull amp for some serious gigs

I'm quite interested to here this, as I'm thinking about buying a 30 watt Kustom myself. I'd imagine it would work for small gigs and practice as my crappy 30 watt bass amp worked just fine.

Just wondering. What sort of music do you play and what do you think of the amp? Also what model is it?

if i were to do a gig, a 30 watt amp would be fine for a small venue but i would go for a 50 watt or higher, for a solid state amp.

If you're amp is a tube amp, you can gig but 30 watt solid states are generally practice amps so I'd say you should get a bigger amp if you want to gig, about 50-75(solid-state)or 30-50(tube) watts would be enough for small gigs.

My 30 watt bass amp worked fine for small gigs at pubs and it's solid state. I reckon he'd be right with his.

The amp is a tube amp, so I guess I am good for gigging.

I play mostly trash metal. It is a solid state 30 series. I think the amp is alright, it kicks the **** out of my Laney 20 watt amp. I tried it with the band today, and it worked fine.

If it's a tube, then your going to be good for small/medium sized gigs. Larger gigs will require a 60 or 100W. Then again, I'm talking pretty big gigs, lol.
