For a school talent show,in front of like 150-200 people, what would be a good wattage for a tube amp, and a combo amp? I know tubes are louder and better sounding......don't worry about price, just tell me the watts. thanks

no. dont do that

if price doesnt matter, go for a nice tube combo

and check the all about tubes sticky...there is something about wattage in there

If your school doesn't have a PA go for a 100 watt tube amp. I dont have to mic a 100 watt mesa boogie amp when im at small venues.
#11
100 watt? Yeah right. TS, you don't need anything higher than 30 watts tube. 15 watts tube will do the job, without drowning out the rest of your band. IF you need more, which I doubt, you can mic it as your school undoubtedly has a PA. Trust me.
If you get something too high a wattage, everyone else is gonna have to upgrade as well.

^that and you wont sound good at low volumes at which you probably have to play for practice at home

i hope you didnt mean that...seriously

you will explode if you turn that thing up

to TS...50w (or maybe even 30w) all tube are pretty much enough for every gig ever imagined

id say 30-50, it also depends on what gear your gear your bassist is using and hopw good the sound people are. Also, if you scoop your mids you will need more volume to compensate.

200W all tube FTW!

There's no sch thing as too many watts.

I say get a thunderverb 200 and forget the attenuator! Turn it to 11 and everyone in the front row will be...well...dead.
