When I was eight, me and my best friend started "practicing for girls".
Which involved us going into the woods, and him sticking his dick in my ass.
The last time we did it, his sister caught us.

but seriously if 100 watts is overkill, 180 watts will crush your skull into a fine powder, i really doubt any amp with 180 watts is going to be played completely cranked, but it would be cool to.

Obviously its not built for pushing the power amp. Like my Triple Recto, if you use distortion it comes from the pre-amp.

but pushing the power amp is awesome

I know. I love the sound of it. I love putting my JCM900 to 50watt mode (half power) and hooking up all my guitar cabs to it and cranking it. Very smooth and deep. BUT for what I mostly play it wouldnt make sense to have like a VJ or something like that lol.

100 Watts is not necessarily the end all be-all. I have 130 Watt Tube Music Man Amp with 2 10 inch speakers and I can crank it up pretty loud and it has alot of headroom, but it is not
"skull crushing" or "life threatening." On the otherhand, my amp is no Mesa. Mesa seems to be the modern standard of volumes, and 50 watt Mesas are louder than some 100 watt amps. 100 Watts High Gain is completley different to 100 Watts on a Twin or a Blues Amp.

your JCM is modded to work at half power? or you just take one of the tubes out?

Well said. Different wattage for different applications. For blues, a small combo with low wattage is best to achieve the violin like sustain from power amp break up.

Nah it has a Hi or Lo (pentode to triode) switch in the back.

So logically we can deduce that Diezel's target demographic is people wishing to obtain the ability to crush skulls into fine power.

Isn't the point that it doesn't have to be cranked, giving you teh_uhltuhmate headroom?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

masturbation.

Anyway there could be many reasons why people want an amp that powerful, headroom, just sounded better with more power, intended for large venues.
