What's your loudest amp? Mines my fender twin reverb. 85 watts is LOUD cranked. Its loud enough to rattle pictures off the wall. I know and I did. When cranked it actually will overdrive dispite its insane head room. Add a dirty boost and the tone is amazing. ..... and loud enough to cause hearing damage.
Mine are my Fender pro jrs in a 4X10 cabinet

Two Peaveys I inherited from my dad. One is a tube 100 or 120 watt 2x12 from the 70s, the other is 120 watt transtube. One night I had the bright idea to plug into both fully cranked...how I still have hearing after that is a miracle.

At present, I suppose my Peavey Bandit is the loudest, but I almost never use that. Actually, even though my 15W amps are CRANKED when I play them, my loadbox/cab sim pedal let me listen to them at reasonable volume levels over IEMs.

For fun, I plugged my REAL 2x12 into my Orange, just to see how loud my current levels would be in a club. I'm way too loud, and in a jamroom would easily overpower my drummer (and piss off the band). Gimme good stage volume, it's all I need.

...i wrote about the loudest amp i ever owned - but the loudest amp i presently own is a 4x6l6 Randall RM-100 with massive transformers together with a 1960B with G75T's - at least if i go by watt rating.

I have never turned it up, and ironically it serves as my bedroom amp, and actually sounds really nice at db levels of ~ 55 - 60 (measured with a phone app at a distance of 3 ft from the speaker).
Doesn't sound like a turned up amp, no, but still very nice.

So, my (presumably) loudest amp is also the one i use at below conversation leves :D

Fender Twin RI (low power tweed 5E8-A) 40 watts - Not that loud, but can keep up with any drummer. Outside? I mic it. In any club I play, it's attenuated a bit and mic'd. Sorry, don't have a picture of it with my Les Paul. ;)
