    Hi, I was looking for an amp that deliver great power on stage, to play live on pubs etc. actually I have a Champion 110 (30w) but it drowns when I play live. I have in target a Fende Stage 100 (100W) good-priced. I mostlly play blues, R 'n R, Southern Rock, some jazz n' country, like Creedence, Lynyrd Skynyrd, BB King, Eric Clapton, yardbirds all that stuff............
    I´d like to know any opinoin that help me to decide....
    And by the way....my girl is a 69 Tele Thinline Japan with Tele Texas Special Pickups.
    If any can give me an opinion for this amp, I'll thankful him.
    Thanks!!!!

    Deluxe 112

    If you are looking at Fender SS amps, the Deluxe 112 has plenty of power , very good clean channel and a LOT of gain in the OD channel.
    The older Peavey Special and Renown amps have lot's of power and sound decent too for SS amps.

    Behringer makes some nice SS amps;

    at a very reasonable price. I have a GX210 which sounds pretty decent and has some pretty interesting overdriven sounds. Even though I have one Fender tube amp and am buying a second one soon I will keep my Behringer because it so versatile and ties up relatively little money. The GX212 pumps out 120 Watts so for a few bucks more you can get a fairly powerful amp.

    You could buy a tube amp for a very reasonable price. You could try a Peavey Delta Blues (30W, 2X10 or 1X15; tube watts are a lot louder than SS watts) in the $2-350 range. Spend a tad more and you can get the 50W Peavey Classic 50 (2X12 or 4X10) in the sub-$500 range. Some people laugh at 'em, but the bottom line is that for the money, you just can't beat the Peavey Classic series amps (Including the Delta Blues). Lots of Tone for the money. Or if you wanted to go crazy, you could buy a 70's Bandmaster Reverb Head and cab for around $600-$700, but for the money, I'd get the DB.

    I'll second any reccomendation for Peavey, including the tube stuff if it's not too expensive in your area. There's good working musicians all over the globe that are using Peavey solid state amps because they just don't die very often.

    Roland might also be worth a look. The Blues Cube amps might be just what you're looking for.

    Those Roland Cube amps are great.

    A lot of value for the money.

    Blues Cube

    I have a 60watt 3x10 Blues Cube and have had great luck with it. Loud enought for the places we play and has a good sound.

    Cheers,
    Michael
