Hey guys, I keep hearing all this shtuff about needing 300-400 min watts to play. But if you all recall there was a time before we were all famous rock stars that we still had our little Squire 15 practice amps and stuff and somehow or another we managed to play with our drummers for our practices and even in some cases do a party or two!! My first band's equipment was as follows: Drumkit - acoustic (thank God) hehe Bass - Fender Sidekick Bass 30 Guitar - Gorilla "The Tube Cruncher" 35 Vocals - Radio Shack 35w PA It worked! We were all heard. Now come on... You don't REALLY need 400 watts or so to play. It just gives you the head room to adjust your sound exactly the way you like it. Now I am NOT saying that I am gonna take my Squire 15 and play the Long Beach Arena, but remember when we used to jam with that stuff??? Ah...nostalgia.... and now back to my Cyclops. Oh, I love my new amp... I think I will name it PeeWee.
