In your opinion, what's the loudest amps out there?
I nominate the Verellen Meat Hammer.
300 watts RMS, blows the speaker cable plug right out of the cabinet.
For the 50 - 60w combos I think this IA Blues 60 would give the competition a good run.
Nice air conditioner! How many BTUs does she put out??
I have a 65 watt music man . Way to loud
Diezel Herbert 180W, 6 output tubes
Lol... It is a bit of an odd design but it sounds great.
Loving the Verellen Meat Smoke. The cabinet wood looks like it's been barbequed!
The website says it's primarily a bass amp. Would be epic with extended range guitars.
Accepts a 2 Ohm speaker load too! Never seen that before.
Not sure if I am understanding this right, but it seems they do a Meat Smoke Hybrid version that is 1400W!!!!
Twin 700W SS power amps.
I couldn't resist the jab...I'm a natural smartass. I knew you wouldn't mind
No problem Trel.. Its all good..
I had my marshall major in my bedroom for practice for years, but to get meaningful distortion out of it it has to be run flat out which was <disaster areas> not loud enough </disaster area> too loud even with far off neighbours.
It's a pity he didn't have sound level meter reading for the amps. Real data would be interesting. You'd need to run the same speakers and put the same signal through.
Good video , but at aprox. 9:30 he says a Fender Twin Reverb combo amp is louder than a jcm800 with a 1/2 stack....
Lost me right there!
The Laney gh100 ti I had a few years ago was a fair bit louder than the 2203x I had . Both were half stacks with 1960a’s .
i believe it. twin reverb will rip the skin off your head.
I remember Disaster Area!
Skip to 2:07
I believe it too. Years ago I was in the band "The Dinosaurs" in Austin. I played a 2203 full stack. The other guitarist played a Fender Twin through a Morley Power Wah. We were a loud band and cranked everything to sweet-spot kevels. We both used guitar vol knobs for all our major Dynamics.
When that guy took a solo he'd cut through like an air raid siren. His sound was aggressive yet very well defined and clear. Think trumpets. I had to crank the snot out of my rig to keep from getting buried. Me with my 100w head and 8 x 12" speakers getting covered up by an 85 watter pushing 2 x 12s ?!?!?
I'll never understand the phenomenon, but my best guess is that the Twin has a huge EQ spike somewhere in the upper mids which happens to manifest itself as a boost in perceived loudness to our ears.
whatever it is the Fender Twin is the loudest amp ive ever played through.
i cant believe there has ever been a point in time that that kind of power
was needed lol.
It's the cabinet. Open back combos are loud as shit. The sound seems to go in every direction from the source while Marshall cabs tend to be straight out.
The other guitar player in my band used a fender 2x12 I think de ville. On 2 and using some boss multi effects pedal the damn thing was SO loud and obnoxious sounding.I was using a marshall jcm 800 2204.
I had a particularly Balsy Twin once.
It would easily bury a 100 watt 900 and ran with a buddy’s HiWatt 50.
I should have never sold that amp.
