Series Guitar

What type of guitar amplifier should I use for playing jazz?

I have a Schecter Gryphon Diamond Series guitar and I'm playing in a big band with about 20 other people.

I think that I should use a 25 or 30 watt amp, but I'm not sure exactly which kind I should buy. I'm hoping that I could spend about 200 - 300 dollars, but I'd be willing to spend a little bit more...

What brand/style of amp should I buy?

Virtually any type of good amp will work as long as it can produce a loud clean tone. Jazz guitar requires the use of clean tones almost exclusively. A 25 or 30 watt amp may not be loud enough to produce a good clean tone over a full big band ensemble. 50 watts would be better, then you would not have to turn up quite as much which would make your overall sound clearer. Make sure the amp you get has at least a 12" speaker to give you a fuller tone. Go to your local music stores and try as many out as you can. When I was playing in a big jazz band I was using an Ampeg 100 watt single 12 combo (tube amp). It gave me plenty of clean volume and a nice punchy tone. I occasionally used a chorus pedal and a little bit of delay. For the occasional distorted lead I used a Sans amp pedal.
