Yes, it can get very loud when it enters power amp overdrive, but its clean headroom would still be around 30 watts. A 100 watt amp, even with very overstated power rating, would have more clean...

If you have a baritone scale 6 string and don't play much of the higher notes, you probably wont need a 7 string. But if you really want a 7 string, definitely get a baritone scale one if you could.

Yeah they are made up to a certain degree, and yes the actual clean headroom depends on how the tubes were biased etc. But it usually ends up around the ballpark of the "claimed" power rating. Of...

For that you would really need something that's at least 100 watts, otherwise you won't be able to get an actual clean tone at rehearsal volume. Get an used Roland JC120.

Firstly Powerball is probably way too modern and smooth for these tones. Look into a Blackmore or Savage, they would suit you way better. The Blackmore is around the same price as the Fireball 100,...

If he couldn't find the tone he wants with a Jet City then a 6505 won't do either. Both were spawn off the same origin really (Soldano).

But yeah, try throw a tubescreamer up front and tighten it up.

For 90's emo stuff you mentioned, a Vox would be awesome since those stuff are mostly in the clean and crunch range.

I would say get a head. A 212 tube combo is by no means "portable", they are usually super heavy and awkward to lug around. A head + 212 cab would be easier since you can carry them in 2 loads. You...

^ Assuming that he haven't bought anything yet, I guess the easiest and safest way might be getting an 8ohm 4x12" like a Mesa, then he can just run the amp at 4ohm with 2x8ohm loads.

It's mostly down to wattage of the power section of the amp than how many speakers it has. A 60 watt tube power section and a 112 will be loud enough.

And you wanted a combo, I don't think you can...

They all came from the same origin anyway. 5150/6505 and Jet City's were all based on Soldano's. Not to mention that the Jet City's were directly designed by Soldano.
