In my band, I have a Kustom powered 12" monitor our drummer uses live. It's part of my garage PA system. It works fine, but it is only 100W, so not super loud. I am satisfied with the sound quality though. If you see a good sale, I don't think you can go wrong with them. Probably not enough low end for an 8 string guitar though.

I have been using a Kustom 15" powered monitor for a practice amp at home since I got the HD. I like it and it has good low end and good volume. It does get pretty loud but I have to crank the master volume up on the Kustom. I have never tried to use it as a stand alone amp in my band because we have our own PA system as well. We all run direct to the mixer these days. So I am not too sure if this would keep up with your drummer. Also, we had 4 of the Kustom 10" (not powered) as a part of our PA system as personal monitors but eventually replaced them because they are pretty weak. No low end at all and not very loud.
I would stay clear of the 10". We should have bought the 12" instead for personal monitors. These are pretty good monitors for the price so I agree with stumblinman. Try to get them on sale. Also, make sure they have a good return policy because you might not like them.
