Let's say a 50w tube head that's like as loud as a 150w solid state a.k.a transitor?

Thanks

basically yea... it will also sound a lot better at those types of volumes though, you'll be much better off buying a 50 watt tube head than a 150 watt solid-state head in most cases.

Wattage =/= Volume

Tube amps are generally louder than SS, but there is not set rule for the volume difference. It differs from amp to amp.

This. Although we're talking about PERCIEVED volume here. 50 watts is 50 watts, no matter if it's tube SS hybrid etc...

I assure you that a 50 watt Marshall plexi is going to be louder than an 85 watt Fender twin reverb.

Thus, equating "tube" wattage with "solid state" wattage fails.
