    i need an amp in two days because i'm trying out for a couple bands. Right now the combo i use is only a practice amp so it doesnt provide much of anything. My question is, is 200 dollars enough to buy a combo that can produce enough sound to fill small clubs etc. p.s. about how much money would i need to buy a decent set of cabinet,head,etc.

    If you need an amp in 2 days, your going to have to try to find something local. For $200 you can probably get a used Peavey or Crate 15" combo (if there's one available in your area). You should be able to get by with a 15" combo in small/medium sized clubs. I used a Peavey TNT 115s for a couple of years. Good luck.

    I think you'll be ok in small clubs only.If you play in a band that has any volume to it in a medium club you're going to struggle to be heard clearly.If the band is fairly low volume you might be fine.Good luck.
