notes, as in "gimme sumptin' to wright on". -DLRYes, check your notes. 20 watts will enter into clipping (overdrive) at a lower volume than 100 watts.
Yes, 20w will never sound like the 100w big iron. It is just physics.
Marshall did not design the SV20 to overdrive at lower volumes as you posted. You are describing in amp theory that low watts will enter into clipping (overdrive) at a lower volume than 100 watts. That the SV20 which Marshall describes as a 1959 circuit, breakes up quicker than the 100w SL/A that is attenuated, which is also a 1959 circuit.
