I'm looking into buying a peavey 6505+ head that I'll run with a marshall 1960A cabinet. I was wondering, with tube amps how loud would I need to turn on the volume to get a pretty good sound.

I've heard that you need to crank it pretty loud to get a good sound with a tub amp.

Thanks for your answers even as stupid as this question might be.

Dont go with the 1960A Cab, just a heads up G12t-75's are not a good match for that amp.

And a 6505 will sound fine at low volumes for most people... Usually it shines at about 3-4 but sounds decent even as low as .75-1.... Now thats if your playing metal. If your playing classic rock or hard rock your out of luck in an apartment without an attuenator.

+1 to everything.

The 5150 does NOT need to be turned up loud to get a suitable sound out of it. Sure, it might sound better louder, but that doesn't mean it's going to sound horrible at low volumes, not even close.

And yes, G12T-75s + 5150/6505 = Ew. I didn't like my 1960 with my 5150 at all. You want Vintage 30s, maybe V12 Legends.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
