    Is there something I can buy that I can use to increase the volume of a Genz Benz GBE 100 210 T combo amp? Would a power amplifier work? I will be using this a practice amp. The maximum volume I can obtain without clipping is just not loud enough. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Not really. Anything you do to increase "power" or "volume" into the amp will just make it clip even worse.

    Some people find that using a compressor pedal or a "maximizer/enhancer" pedal (e.g. BBE or Aphex) gives them more perceived loudness without actually taxing their amp's clipping limit. Also you may benefit from turning down the lows and turning up the mids. Try one of those options, or get a bigger practice amp, that's pretty much all you can do.
