20 watt amp or half stack

i know everyone is going to say you dont need a half stack but seriously if i can afford it why not

but the main reason for this is i know tube amps are louder than ss
and i need enough volume for band practice/shows

idk how loud 20 watts of tube is so can someone help me out

i have a feeling the head will be too loud
but the thing is we play pretty loud so yeah

Do you have another smaller practice amp?.
If so then yeh go for the halfstack.
Don't end up like me with a 50 watt Marshall half stack in my bedroom :P:

The windsor combo from my experience SUCKS compared to the head. The head is relatively nice if you don't care about cleans and you don't mind having only one channel.

Someone else will explain why you don't need it.

yeah im not worried about cleans too much

i have a crate i use for practice which isnt bad for practicing

im just worried about the head being to loud and having it turned down and not having good tone as it would if cranked up

well the combo is 20 watts i think, but the head is 100 watts.
the combo isnt a very good sounding amp. the head is a great sounding amp if you only want the cranked classic rock sound. however its probably too loud for you.
