If I got jcm800 for not just the occasional gig but to put in my room. Would that be way to loud and powerful for a bedroom? I like the tone of a cranked marshall. should I got with a 50? Id rather have a 100 for live I think but for room would it work at all? would say a 50 watta jcm800 head be the same as the 50 watt amplifier in a jcm800 combo? thanks

50w will be plenty to blow your eardrums. Even my solid state MG50DFX keeps my ears ringing for a while at 3 on the volume knob. Tube amps are louder, so 50w will be more than enough for practice in your room, band practice, and gigs.

use a Marshall 100 watts of tubes in your bedroom and youll be deaf at 55 yrs old lollll Its way too loud for a bedroom, get a 50 watts.

Even 50 watts will blow your eardrums if you make it loud enough. Just keep it at reasonable volumes and it should work perfectly though.

You could use a volume pedal in the fx loop and control the amps power (I think).

Then unleash mighty marshall power at gigs.

^Still, even for gigs he won't need more than 50w tube power. Just mic the amp and you're done.

Like said, even a 50 watt will blow your eardrums (and possibly your mind). Get the 50 watter and get an attentiator to go with it.

Very true. My 60 watt deville is loud enough to wake the neighbor hood (no Joke).

So really it what you want Manliness or cost effective.

If you don't think 50 watts is loud enough for your gigs (would they should be! if they aren't too big) then go with the 100.

If you like the sound of a cranked Marshall, get an attenuator.
Bleh.

The volume difference between the 50 and 100 watts isn't going to be very noticable. You'll just have more headroom with the 100 watts.

Both are way more then you need for practice, especially being tube!

Find a 50 watt-er, get an attenuator, let 'er rip.

If I were you I'd use a 50 watt for your bedroom, just keep it on low volume and then have a back up half stack for gigs, because if you're like me and you like your drummers and bassists loud, you need a big amp.

50 watts is only 3db quieter than 100 watts.
Wattage is a measure of headroom, not volume.

i woodnt use a 100 watt unless u have no windows or doors so the sound can escape.... id definitely go with the 50
