Ok, I did a quick search and am not finding the explaination I am looking for... But then again, I'm horrid with the search feature, so my apologizies if this has been cover before. I am currently using an Ampeg SVT-350H and am in a band with two guitarist who are using a Mesa Dual Rectifier and a Marshall DSL 100, and a drummer whom I affectionately refer to as thunderbutt... hehe. I am thinking of saving my pennies for a 300 watt tube head as I love the way they sound compared to solid state. What I don't understand is how a 300 watt tube amp sounds louder than my 350 watt ss head..
