I bought a small tractor once. Like 20hp. It wouldn’t do everything I needed. Same with an amp, whatever you choose, make sure you pick one that’ll cover more than one venue. What sounds and works fine in a garage/practice area may not work at the outdoor Birthday party you play. That’s when you’ll need that bigger tractor. I’m not saying a 100w stack, but a 10w may not cut it either. I can use a Vox AC15 for 95% of what we play, but that may not suit your needs at all. If you’re gonna play Strats, IMO you need a Tube Screamer type pedal to boost those mids. It’s a necessity for me. Take your time, play a bunch of stuff, and spend a little time playing it.
