Now, bear with me, I'm going to hit a trifecta of taboos; Tube vs SS volume, watts in relation to volume, and anything to do with fEarful (not so much a taboo, but can evoke some strong reactions). I have a fEarful 15/6/1 and 15 sub that I'm using with a GB Streamliner 900, and I'd just like a little more volume. I LOVE having a cab that can take as much as I want to give it, and I don't like having to back off on the low frequencies to get volume. I'm torn between just getting a nice big Crown and being running the Streamliner as a preamp, or getting tube amp. I *want* the tube amp, but not if it's not going to give me the extra headroom I want (doesn't have to be squeaky clean headroom). Looking at something in a Traynor YBA300 or Ashdown CTM300 (I live in Australia, and things tend to be either impossible to find, or massively overpriced, so it limits my options) I play in a band with 2 other guitarists, and we use drum tracks, no FOH support for the bass, if that's relevent. Is that enough information to help me make a decision? I guess what I'm essentially asking is will a 300-watt tube amp beat out my streamliner and give me more volume, or should I just be looking at a power amp?
