Wattage question for the forum's tube amp experts...
I'm planning to purchase my first all-tubes amp probably this coming summer. But i'm struggling a bit to figure out what wattage should I aim for.
I would like a versatile amp that can be used for home recording but still is powerful enough to keep up with a drummer.
My music style is from jazz-blues to some classic rock. No real high gain metal stuff. And I'm not gonna be playing in any large venues, so 100W is way overkill for me, i'm pretty sure.
I've been told that 30W is a bit tigh with drums (of course, i know it depends on the drummer).
I'm really interested to hear what you guys think and knows about this issue. This will help me narrow down the insane choices there is out there, and concentrate on tone qualities to make my choice.
