: My band is going to play house parties, small clubs, etc. What wattage of amp will I need? I don't want to be drowned out, but I don't want some huge setup. Any experience?

Bob, as long as no one in the band tries to have volume contests, 100 watts
with 1x15 should do the trick. A bigger head is O.K.(smoke 'em if you got'em)
but that might temp you to get a bigger bottom. In my opinion, less is more.
Now, if you're playing Metal, the above is null and void.
