Hey guys


I've decided on getting a Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier with a 2x12 Marshall 1936 Cab

The only thing is will it be as loud as my Marshall 100DFX?

I need something that loud you see because I'm in a band with a rhythm guitarist, a bassist and a drummer.

Thanks


=)

Yes. It will be much much much much louder.
50 watts tube will easily get your heard over a drummer, it's giggable with ease.
Can we erase the past?
To allow our dreams to forever last?

Jesus christ man... Are you seriously asking this?


That Rectifier will blow your MG to smithereens!

It will most likely too loud to crank even in medium sized venues.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

Why is tube amp louder than solid state. Read this!!!


"Watts" is a mathematical calculation of power consumption, not a measure of loudness. Loudness is measured in "decibels". Though higher watts does certainly mean higher volume, the only actual way to compare the volume output of any two amps is to measure the decibels they produce, for each amp, or type of amp, may have a different "efficiency".

It's just like the fact that light bulbs are described per wattage, but the brightness of light is actually measure in "lumens". That's why a the new compact fluorescent light bulb listed as 15w (power consumed) puts out the same light as an old style 60w incandescent bulb (950 lumens).
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Great thanks Boxcar! So in a nutshell, a tube amp uses less power to put out the same or more volume(decibels)

Like 50 watts tube is less power than 100 watts SS, but tube is more "potent" so it has a higher db level?


Thanks again!

There are a few reasons. Tube produce more harmonic overtones so they sound louder. Two, they sound better overdriven so they sound better turned up. SS amps sound like crap turned up really loud, so you aren't as likely to be cranking one.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
