I would recommend checking out the Peavey ValveKing series, its some of the cheapest tube amplifiers you can buy. However, the quality is great! I know from experience that if you decide to go with one, you will not regret it.

My advice would be get an amp with an output to suit your playing and remember the output on a 5 watt valve amp will probably compare to a 30 or 40 watt solid state. Tube amps are only really unleashed at cranked levels and you can't crank a 40 watt tube amp in your bedroom..well you can but there'd be trouble!

None of this is true.

A valve amp is louder than a solid state amp, but not 6 to 8 times louder. Saying a 5 watt valve amp is as loud as a 10-15 watt solid state amp would be more accurate.

And tube amps do sound better with the volume up a little bit, but that doesn't mean they only sound good that way. And it really depends on what genre you're playing. You're not really going to want to crank an amp and get power tube distortion if you're playing death metal. Tube amps are perfectly fine for bedroom usage, and will sound great when used that way as well. (Provided it's a decent tube amp)

No, I said what I think is true. If I'm wrong please correct me, I'm not looking to argue. Just saw something that I didn't believe to be true and didn't want some one new to this stuff to believe it.

I looked at some of fingas other threads/posts and unfortunately, I do not think this is a troll.
I don't know...

- asks about tube amps
- considers "imp" an acceptable substitution for "important"
- thinks Slash is cool

i would have just replied to his post with a "no". "don't go there".

my problem is once i start believing in all that "wattage/volume" stuff i meet an amp that defies all of that logic.

play a budda SD18 II and tell me it's 18 watts. then play a peters CDC 50 or marshall 1987, then play a slo.

one's 18 watts, two are 50, and one's 100. and there isn't much overall volume difference between them. i will say the slo seems a bit louder than the budda, but not by as much as you would think.

i'm not saying what you posted is wrong by any means, just that there really is no good general rule there for me, based on the amps i've owned and played.

and it's a can of worms better left unopened generally here. imo.

I understand your point, and I realize wattage isn't the a very good measurement of volume. I guess this really is an argument better left alone. Especially in cases like this.

I am sorry. I am not a troll, i do not just sit here and stare at the computer either. when i am not at work, I feel no need to make sure everything is in correct english........ i came here for opinions on gear, and guitar in general, not english lessons. i do not have a lot of free time, so i choose to spend it practicing guitar, rather than grammer..... but sorry , as i have obviously offended you all................anyway thankx to the people who offered their opinions ans not their hate

Agreed. Sitting by yourself in front of the amp and the differences between amps of different wattages can really seem pretty minute.

The only time wattage ever really make a significantly noticeable difference to me is when I'm playing with a band and noticing that a 15 watt amp is getting lost in the mix while a 30 watt one isn't.
