Since I've been using my practice amp almost exclusively for playing the last few years, I almost sold my "big" bass rig amp head over the last couple weeks. I've since reconsidered and decided to keep it, but it got me thinking. How the hell do you recon "watts" and why is it so inconsistent? My speaker cabinet is a very early (white label) Eden D210T which is absolutely wonderful sounding. My amp is a 1966 Fender Bassman (pic attached). Now, I know this thing is supposed to be "50 watts" but I can tell you it is a hell of a lot more powerful and louder than my old Dean Markley "150 watt" combo was. For that matter it's on par with my old Eden Nemesis "200 watt" combo. This sucker is LOUD and CLEAN let me tell you! And boy oh boy does it have tone. Tone like you wouldn't believe, thich, rich tone that dreams are made of. Volume won't be as good as lots of modern stuff, but man oh man the tone of this thing is simply unbelievable. How come this "50 watt" amp is so friggin' loud?
