I'm currently gigging four nights a week and.... an occasional "off night" as well and doing it all with a DRRI.. I don't see a need for another amp at all. My Deluxe even works well in some larger venues where we're not miked. I feel blessed as I got my DRRI used for only $500 with an old 12" JBL speaker in it and it's by far the best sounding amp I've ever had. I use a Boss ME-70 board in front of it and can dial in anything I need at any gig.........JH in Va.
