I have the Blackstar HT40 Club...believe it would hold its own in the situations you describe. I purchased it used last Oct for $350. Shortly thereafter, I purchased a Quilter 201...which will also hold its own and two 1x12 cabinets. I forget the price specifics of the Quilter (SDoD) and the cabs (which I bought empty from Seismic), then purchased speakers specifically for the Quilter...but, I have all the above at less than $1K invested...good for just about anything. ((Also, the Quilter can be carried as a backup to the Blackstar and run through that speaker if required)). My dollartwoninetyeight. Happy hunting. And...welcome!
