  1. is it worth upgrading from a yorkville 50 W to a yorkville 100 W for 25 bucks more?

    either way would i be heard in a garage-size band? how bout if i hooked up speakers to it?

    thanks in advance

    I think it would be worth it for only 25 bux, however if you plan on playing in a band situation with a drummer and guitarist, you will probably need at least 300 watts. A 100 watt amp will probably be drowned out by a drummer. If you wanted to use it with some acoustic guitars it would be fine but drums are usually pretty darned loud. Believe it or not, doubling your wattage doesnt give you double the volume (i think its only a 3db increase) but for only 25 bux its worth it IMO.
