    From what I hear, they are not bad for a small amp. Not really gig worthy, but fine for practice. With only 90 watts, I doubt it could fend against a heavy handed drummer. What do you have at the moment, and what kind of sound are you looking for?

    Go used, definitely. You can get more power that way. You'll need all you can get in a band setting.
