Are your prayer beads maple or rosewood?

The music store where we rehearse has lost the parking lot right out front (city is doing work!), and I'm not keen to haul my PC Classic 30 a city block once a week. The SS amp thread had me looking on Ebay; my drummer is no caveman, and I'm not competing with Marshall stacks (other guys have Classic 30 and PV Delta Blues).
Will probably run with no pedals as well to lighten the load...any alternatives in the $120-160 range?

Yes a Cube 30 will hang with a drummer, no problem.

Find an old Peavey Bandit 1x12 and stick some pedals in front and you'll have a totally giggable rig.

"Find an old Peavey Bandit 1x12 and stick some pedals in front and you'll have a totally giggable rig."

True, but those Bandits are heavy bastages. Defeats the OP's purpose.

edit to add: I had a Cube 30 and used it in rehearsals with a drummer and bass player. Like you, the drummer was not "Bam-bam" which makes a difference.

A Fender Champion 40 at 19 lbs for $180 would give you more edge over the Cube 30. I've had both.

I've tried a couple Roland cube amps with a group, didn't work at all. They just get lost in the mix.

I recall that the Roland Cube 30 delivered good tone but it was the narrowest beaming amp I ever had.

mroulier,

Just a thought, but if the rehearsal space/parking lot situation is just temporary, get yourself a Joyo American Sound ($40 US).
You can go direct into the PA, or if you have a spare powered speaker even better.
They sound great and work well with pedals. I've had one for about 5 years and it's never given me any trouble. (it's my dedicated home rig)
I actually sold my Tech 21 Blonde after owning the Joyo for a couple of years.

Just another cheap option for you.

Mick, why did you sell the Blonde? Similar tone for less money, or wasn't something else?

Hi Brent.
I had the Blonde set up on a small board as a backup rig in case of amp failure. It mostly sat in the cupboard as I had the American Sound set up with a small mixer & powered speaker for home playing.

I would definitely say "Similar tone for less money..." was a big part of selling. Plus I'm a gear "ho". Always buying selling stuff...

I did an A/B with both pedals a few years ago and posted it in Rev. Mikey's "Blonde" review thread here.
My comments are in the
