I said I'd do it and here it is.

Who has the LEAST powerful amp, in term of wattage.

For my part, I have a Marshall Class 5 which is obviously 5 watts. I use it for band practice.

I also have a Sears Silvertone 1481 which is also 5 watts.

How low can you go?

My Roland Blues Cube goes down to 0.5 watts.

I built a tweed Princeton as a 2x10. I think it dissipates 8w, traditionally, but I haven’t measured it and it has higher voltages and a choke instead of a dropping resistor.
I play that thing out all the time and get told to turn down sometimes.
Like mentioned in the “other” thread, wattage doesn’t tell the whole story.

I also have iRig on my phone. :D

I get the evil eye a lot from our other guitarist...lmfao. Our singer/leader/harmonica player really gets into the moment and is always giving me the hand signal to boost up, to the point the our other guitarist gets lost in the mix. Makes me feel like an asshole, but man i love it loud, thats when i seem to shine. I'm just doing what i'm told...:laugh2:

Well I'll be damned. I can't imagine how good 1/10 watt sounds.
My AC4 only really sounds great at 4watt mode, the 1 and 1/4 sounds really muddy and muffled.

The tubes still get thrashed, but not the speaker, soooo there's part of the tone equation missing :D
