Me too :thumbup: Backline can often sound recessed or a bit distant, even if it's a big amp, and mixing just a tiny bit of it into the PA, not to make it louder but to open the sound up makes a big difference to the overall sound of the band.

Great thread! Nice to see lots of differing opinions.

I use an original tube Orange Tiny Terror into a 2*12 Orange PPC212. I find that it goes plenty loud enough to match a drummer going at it on the 15w setting, and purrs nicely on the 7w setting when it's a lower key gig in the pub situation.

If we're on a stage that requires mics, it generally sits on the 7w setting unless it's a really big stage!

I use, or, at the moment used to use a Marshall JTM 30 for gigs, this would be positioned facing across the stage and mic'd up to go through the PA. This acted as my own personal guitar monitor, but the rest of the band could hear it without it beaming at the audience. I can also recommend the Orange Tiny Terror, although, I have the combo version. Again facing across the stage and mic'd through the PA.

Regards, Simon.

For my opinion, power of your guitar stage combo is proportional with drummer's loudness and how close you stay near drums). 30W if enough for a big stage and big distance from drummer.

If you send it to a 4x12, even the 7w is gonna blast the room. Only thing I regretted when I sold that cab is that I could not longer use with the Terror!
