From my experience solid state watts <> tube wattsSmolder wrote:... I was thinking about grabbing a mc-50, but read where many see them as too small. Is there a disconnect between the watt rating of macs and twins? What am I missing here?
For reasons that I still haven't quite figured out, a 50 watt tube amp will blow away a 50 watt solid state amp volume wise. So we see the larger Macs in use and 50 watts of solid state may not be enough for your band mix, etc.
Others may have a different opinion but you will likely have to go over 100 watts solid state to equal the output of your twin, presuming it is not the Ultra Linear 135 watt jobber...
