I'm going to pursue the Budda with a 45-day trial period. I love the option to use a SS or tube rectifier and like that the SD45 has also has more wallop, but hear the volume may be a bit much. Most we will play in front of without micing is up to 300 people in a 3000 sf building with good acoustics. I gig around 2-3 times a month starting next month, but this is not really a bedroom amp in that I have a smaller amp for home use. I hear the SD30 is enough, but that it lacks a little oomph. I wonder if an EQ in the loop would add a little oomph to it. Styles range from Crowes/Kravitz/GNR to STP/AIC/PJ to NIN/Tool/WHite Zombie. Thoughts from users with experience?
