How much more powerful is a tube amp than a solid state?

I have a crate VTX 212 (120 W) and i was wondering if a Peavey Classic 30 (30 W)would have volume levels in the same range

Probably not quite as loud, but it will be close, and it will certainly be all the volume you'll need unless you start playing some rather large gigs. Look around in the stickies and use the search bar.

The classic 30 will be loud enough for most applications; some larger gigs will probably need to have it miked but it'll be loud enough for small gigs and band rehearsals and will almost certainly sound better cranked than the Crate.

It might not be as loud but it will definitely sound much better than the solid state amp when cranked.

What he said!

A watt is a watt no matter if its tube, SS, atomic, solar, whatever!!!!!

Wattage doesn't equal volume!!!!!

Repeat those lines until it sinks in!

^^Agreed x 100.

^That's true, but more watts GENERALLY mean more volume, when it comes to amps, and tube do have more perceived volume at equal wattage when compared to solid state amps. I'm sure you know what he meant.
