The older I get, the more I come to the point to use amps with as low wattage as possible. We all know that tube amps sound the best when they are driven hard. But sometimes I´m not sure how many watts I really need. I do have a Mesa Boogie Studio .22 with 22 watts and it was always enough for me. Recently I bought me an old German tube amp which is basically a Tweed Deluxe clone but with 17 watts (it´s called Dynacord Twen). I haven´t played it on stage yet, and I don´t know if it can compete with a drummer, but I guess it will, because it has almost the power of the Mesa. But I do have serious doubts, if a 12 watt Tweed Deluxe 5E3 or something like that will be powerful enough. I´m mostly a blues guy (sometimes a little bit jazz, funk, country...). I want to be able to play clean - not sterile clean, but clean in the sence of 50ies tweed sound (think of Elvis and other Rock´n´Rollers). And I want the amp to be able to handle a small club gig with about 200 people. So, how many watts would you recommend AT LEAST for this domain? I know that I can always mic the amp and play through a P.A., but I want the amp be powerful enough, that I can hear myself on stage, even if the drummer is kinda like a smasher... Thanks a lot! Daniel P.S. Do you think a Princeton Reverb or a Vox AC15 can handle that?
