    Sorry if this has been asked before but i read through the amp guide and didnt find anything. Im torn between two amps. Fender blues deluxe reissue 40watts and Fender blues jr. 15 watts. Would the 15 watts be loud enough to jam with a band? I'm not looking for enough volume for a gig but...

    But only could play it for about 15 minutes at home because my kid had to go to bed. It's a 2x12 combo. It's heavy as heck and it's excruciatingly loud. Mark IV may be looking for a new owner soon.
