    loudmouth,
    It's not a terrible amp, but it's not a great amp. I've had for a little under a year and I bought it before I was in a band. Now I'm saving up for a something with some more power. If I was only playing small jazz gigs and stuff, it would be fine for that, but if you're looking for an amp that will let you play all size gigs, you should look at some used gear and get at least 300 watts, in my opinion. And as far as speaker cabs, that depends on the sound you're looking for. It would be better to go that route, even if you can only afford to get a head and one speaker cab, you'll be better in the long run, because you can always add more speaker and increase your sound. I hope this has been informative.
