There's that stupid Crate that's like 4 million watts or something outrageous with 2 cabs the sizes of houses.

If the MH is solid state, then it isnt the loudest. And it think it is solid state. There is probably some insane boutique tube amp with crazy high wattage.

id worry more about sound then loudness.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

haha, yeah i just get annoyed at my lame crate gt1200 hlaf stack becasue no matter how loud i trun it up, to frummer for our band drowns it out. i dont get it, i knew he played loud, but hes not supposed to play louder than my amp turned up all the way. i guess a crazy wattage amp would do the trick, so i wouldnt have to turn it up to 10, which tends to mess up the sound.

and the fender metal head is 550 watts out of two cabs, 400 out of one. i would get it, but its a stupid solid state. like my amp.

As for on the market, that must go to the Crate Blue Voodoo 300. It's 300 watt version of the Blue Voodoo head. As for ever, the Crate Blue Voodoo 600 that used a 8x12 or something like that.

I read in The Hitchhikers guide the galaxy that there is a band that you typically have to be 40 miles away in a concrete bunker to listen to. I think they use Marshalls.

Isn't the randall T2 600watts, and its hybrid, so its probably a lot more dynamic than the fender metal head.

From my experiece with many amps, Fender Hot Rod's are the loudest amps with the volume knob on like 2 or 3

But overall, i'd go with a mesa triaxis running through a Strategy 500. ok, so maybe its not your normal head cab setup..do i care?

You can probably cut through drums on 3 on that amp.

Easily.

The power seems to come from the EQs so I set them low so I can turn the volume up and get some gain.

Turn the EQs up and it'll clear the place.

haha, yeah i just wanted to know... im not gonna play at any stadiums any time soon, im just thinking though, if crate make a HUGE amp that pumps out 600 watts, then couldnt you just get a 550 watt full stack metal head? well, no one wants a solid sate amp anyway....

saw the video, and that amp is insane, kinda pointless though, you'd have to haul it around ina semi if you wanted to go anywhere...
#28
the sucky thing is, its reall impossible to play louder than my drummer like i said beforem is insanely loud. i dont know how he does it, but he drowns out my 120 watt amp withy every knob at 10 and it bugs me so much. theres npothing wrong with my amp its just that my drummer is insane. how people can play shows with 50 watt amps at 2 or 3 is beyond me. the must have weak drummers, or my drummer hits too hard...
#29
It's also got a thing to do with acoustics. In a stadium, the drummer might only be heard a tad bit while in a bedroom or basement, everything is so confined that the sound just deadens and stays within the area it's played in.

Plus, 120w SS is nothing compared to the same 120 in a tube amplifier. The tubes make it sound louder when the watts are really the same. Strange concept, but yeah.

I've heard 4 50watt tube amps and they can fill a 1,000 person crowd stadium easily without having to crank them.

Sounds like he's quite a banger. How many drums he busted already?

I don't have a band but we have get togethers in my friend's shop. We're pretty loud in there and I'm the only one there that doesn't drink.

It amazes me what alcohol does to my friends. It loosens their lips, their minds, and causes memory losses.
