: 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?

A good middle ground price wise and volume/quality wise is a 200watt head with a 15 cab. This assumes your guitarist isn't an 80's relic who needs to be louder than most 747's. A 200 watt rig with a decent 15 or if cash flow allows 4x10 will work to put you on an even level with most drum kits in most medium size rooms. Of course your situation may not match my experience at all, but there is my two cents. P.S. Go for tonal quality first, a loud piece of crap will never make you happy. -B
