Hi! You know what they say about tube watts being twice louder than solid state watts. I've noticed this in guitar amps, I tested a 45w tube amp against a 100w solid state and the tube amp seemed even louder (I know we don't perceive 100w not even nearly twice as loud as 50w) Both were quality amps. I assume this also happens when comparing tube bass amps to solid state ones. Am I right?
