Love my C30 and all it can do but there I'm considering a Jet City 100h that's available here locally. My band is playing the typical club and party type gig and the other guitar player is blasting out through a 150 watt Line 6 and 4x12.
I usually run the PV clean at about 8-9 to keep up even while using a CrunchBox and Fat Drove OD up front.
Would 100 watts of tubage be just too damn much or is volume less an issue than the tone that comes with the extra juice?
What's a boy to do?
Great advice here.. I say have both the C30 and the JCA100H.. I will disagree with some people though. For example, my 4x12 lives in the bands equipment trailer. When I know its going to be an easy night, I tote in my Vintage Club 50 2x12. When I know its going to be an insane night with alot of crowd, singing along, whooping and hollering, I roll the 4x12 out and perch the JCM900 on top of it. What I am saying is, sometimes overhead may be a necessity, and you never know what you are going to need in the spur of the moment. Believe me, nothings worse than when everyone is looking to you to turn up, and you're already at 10.
As a plus, with the JCA100H you'll probably find little need to touch your pedals much, they are a sweet sounding amp for the $... Do it!
