Peavey TNT 115. i believe it's 100 watt solid state. might get one as i found a really good deal on one. No playing at high volumes pretty much ever. Will it sound as good as like a 50 watt SS at the same volume or will it be the same?

I have the impression that volume doesn't matter much for solid state amps. Am i correct?

The thing is that the price is cheaper than the that of a much cheaper amp. i can get this one cheaper than a fender rumble 60 watt. I'm just wondering if this will sound good because i probably will never trade this again.

Thanks

This is really opinion based. It wont sound bad by any means.

No, since SS amps are designed to be turned up all the way and still not distort, half-volume should be pretty much the same as almost max. I don't know if it will sound the same as a half-wattage amp, but it won't sound bad. I play a 100w ampeg at low volumes all the time.

actually if you turn a solid state amp all the way up it will clip(aka distort) but as far as i'm concerned who turns their solid state amp to 10? It will sound the same as it does at loud volumes. That's the beauty of solid state amps.

i mean like playing at 1-2 out of 10. not like 3. Well. it was pretty helpful anyways. I just gotta say that i mean like REALLY low because i live in an apartment with neighbors that have 100000000 complaints. I can barely turn my amp past 2 without **** sometimes.

Edit: Maybe Headphones? It's another option. If you get some decent ones, it doesn't sound too bad.

I play my peavey 60 watt at 2 in my bedroom and it sounds fine. I used to use a 130 watt at 1-2 and it was fine. Like I said. The beauty of solid state is good tone at low volumes. It has other perks too but that's the big one to me.

Thanks man. I was looking at solid states because of the fact that they dont distort as much as tube amps do. I guess this is one of those bonus good things. Thanks for the info
