I feel almost embarrassed asking this question, but I don't have much experience with heads and cabs and whatnot, but here goes:

would a 50 watt tube head work with a 120 watt cab? (the cab originally came paired up with a 120 watt solid state head.)

My weird logic is saying that solid state and tube has nothing to do with the cab and that it would work, but then again i remember the old rule of thumb that you multiply the tube wattage by 3 to see what it would be solid state, and that would make the head 150 solid state watts- more than the 120 watt cab could handle at high volumes.

So yeah, would the two be compatible? Am I thinking way too far into this?
I wanna say they would work, but it doesn't hurt to ask the great community that is UG

thanks a bunch for clearing this up,

Tube amps arnt actually louder, just how the sound is produced makes it seem louder, so even though you can multiply the wattage of a tube by 2.5/3 whatever you think it is, it may sound that loud, but its still only 50 watts.

You'll be fine, just make sure the ohms match.
