I play through a little 50 watt Mesa Boogie amp with one little 12" speaker and it will melt your face off on 3. I have never had it on 10.

Solution...Marshall JCM 800 2204 50 watt master volume with either 6550's or el34's. This amp will provide all the tone he needs at lower volumes as well as punch through even the loudest drummer at higher decibles. Should be able to find a decent used on the bay.

Cheers, TB.


I'll have him look in to it. I love the breakup of the Marshall heads at low volumes.

I once played a 50W Sovtek head through a 4x12 cab in a tiny bedroom once. The bedroom was only big enough for a bed, a desk, a dresser and MASSIVE GUITAR AMPLIFICATION. It was very loud. :mrgreen:

If your friend is convinced he needs more power, steer him towards the ones with switchable power settings. I have also heard of running amps with fewer power tubes, but this may require other fiddling or, in general be a Bad IDea.

Anyways, so my question is, would you even need 100w? And would a 15w head be loud enough? I know the wattage isn't exponential (is that the right term) meaning that a 30w tube head isn't twice as loud as a 15w and a 100w isn't twice as loud as a 50w, etc. a 15w head would provide ample volume and tube breakup when put up next to a drummer, another guitarist, and a bassist, wouldn't it? I just know that my Classic 50, which has two 12's in it, is more than plenty loud. Running a 100w head through twice as many speakers just seems ridiculous to me.
