I have actually never played a Transtube but I 'think' the general concenses is that they are above average in their price range. I've heard that the distortion, cleans and effects are actually pretty good. The Vypyrs are based off of the Transtube technology and I like those so ....

I would totally buy this amp head for $209 used.

100 watt tube amps will 'sound' louder than a 100 watt solid state amp but 100 watt SS amps are still very loud. We will try not to derail this thread into a discussion about sine waves and crystal lettuce.

My opinion is it will knock the MG on it's ass!
So your telling me this amp would be loud enough to compete. Thank you very much. I know a tube would, but i wasnt sure how different it was.
