As a new player I don't own an amp yet (other than a tiny practice amp). Eventually my guitar playing buddy and I will be doing a small gig for our social club in the hall where we work. He's got a 50 watt combo (1 x 12"), so I need to get something to at least match his output. What I would like to ask is what you recommendation I go for in terms of output and to a lesser extent the speaker size / number. My budget is limited (read tiny) so I'll be buying second hand assuming that I can find something for sale. Also I wonder if perhaps I forgo buying my own and just hire something for the event - is this a good practice? Thanks in advance.
