    I use the 350 through an Aguilar 1x12. It is plenty loud unless you need to be super loud without PA support.

    What cabs ?

    Edit: oops, just read your cabs...
    I just used my TH-350 with my 210 + 115 hartke XL's at an outdoor gig and it was very loud... I think you will be fine, it's a very healthy 350w into 4 ohms... but knob positions don't mean much between amps... 😉

    Depends on the volume of the other band members....In my band that set up would not work. I use 2 115 gk"s stacked or an 810 with a 300 tube or 500 SS amp. I do play against a marshall half stack and a very aggressive drummer. I think the th350 and your cabs would be fine if your band members are more focused on dynamics and less on volume........I would imagine a wedding band doesnt want to contribute to their patrons hearing loss...

    For a wedding band playing to 100-300 a TH350 will cut it no problem through most 300w+ 8 ohm cabs.

    don't laugh; i've run into a problem with a loud drummer, and my th350 and gs112 wasn't quite doing it. i immediately dug through some old gear and posted stuff looking for a bigger 4ohm cab in trade... the first offer i got was an ampeg 810. i have run the th350 near to flat out for two practices so far and it still blows cool air out the back, and the band is pretty happy with the sound.

    it looks silly, though, that tiny little thing on top of an 810...

    ^^^I can believe it, I use a 400 RB with an 810 and that slams.

    From what i read, heard and experienced myself, the tonehammers can be driven at full volume without fear, even for longer periods of time. The th500 has a powersection that is used in 800w amps of other brands and afaik the powersection of the 350 is equally oversized. You don't get more watts than 350, but if it's capable of doing a lot more, it runs on full without breaking a sweat, even for longer.
    I use my th500 with 4x12 against two halfstacks and we play loud. My master is at noon.
