DSL20HR and a pair of greenbacks
I have the DSL20HR and runs it with a 1*12 Creamback, sounds great
I would second the Mini Jubilee. It’s the only amp I play at home. Very loud but easy to tame.
And don’t rule out the origin 20h, I know you thought the 50 sounded skinny, my reply was I didn’t think mine did, you need to push it with a od of your choice, I use an SD1, and the 3 power settings you should be able to tame it for your room size!
This is the 50h on low power volume at 2 1/2 fx out to a mosfet 100 on 2, volume is low so my phone won’t clip, because I am in no way able to make a professional recording! Cheers
Thomann also sells the Harley Benton 212 with v30s in it for about 260 shipped to the US. You cannot beat that.
WWYD? (what would Yngwie do) ...
Third vote for the Mini-Jublilee. Great Marshall sound at low volumes but just enough power if you need to keep up with a drummer.
The Class 5 will still be enormously loud in that room through a 412. I second the NMV Head with a PPIMV option, or - and people usually hate this answer - get a Bassbreaker 007 Head. They are inexpensive as far as tube amps go and the 7 watt ones can sound VERY plexi like at very friendly volumes. They even have an onboard treble boost.
Volume difference between a 100w and a 50w is about 3db, just with some earlier breakup on the 50.. and it won't break up early enough for your ears to survive in a little room dude. Hell, the class 5 cranked to crunch is too loud. You're gonna want to attenuate or use a little amp. I'd still put it through a 4x12 though, that'll always sound better.
IMO, the SL-5 or the DSL5 would be better than the C5...
The 1 watters are good, but, the more classic you go, once again, you'll need to get those little 1 watters loud.
I find that, you ca get a better sound using a high gain 100 watt vs a high gain lower watt. Even if running the 100 watt at the same volume as a 50, or 1 watter, it sounds more full in the bottom end. It will have more "thump", even if you don't think that there is any thump at that volume. It will sound fatter.
You probably won't notice it, until you actually swap back & forth between the lower watt & higher watt counterparts. Once you know it's there, you'll most likely opt for the fatter, higher watt amp, even if it doesn't have the volume saturation that a lower watt amp offers.
Get yourself 18 Watt MArshall and install nice PPMIV with PEC pot and you are all set...
18 watt Ceriatone is also great
I second a 1watt head.
For starters......Get a good high quality 2x12 cab with high quality speakers. Celestion G12M Greenback or Creamback comes to mind as obvious solutions for example. Even a high quality 1x12 would sound huge in that space. The cab and speaker selection are very important.
you need an attenuator period. even 5 watt heads are loud as fxxk. get yourself a nice attenuator and buy any head you want. all speakers need to push some air to sound good. the next best thing is to add an eq pedal as well. attenuator + eq pedal. i play my 100 watt heads at tv volumes and it still sounds great.
What's wrong with you guys (joking), I've played my 100w 1959 half stack in a room that's about 16x16, and it was fine. No, I'm not deaf, you just need a decent attenuator (I was using a power brake). If you want the big boy Plexi tone, then guess what? That's right, but don't forget that attenuator (forget the master volume mods).
Funny seeing amps up there that you know he dosen't use, jvm ? really. Nice ritchie blackmore circa' 77' outfit. haha. A good friend of mine lives near yngwie in florida and see's him all the time in his ferrari and yup ,,,that outfit,lol.Can only imagine the case a jock itch,crotch rot,chaffing and rash going on in that heat.smh
You may consider an Ampeg GVT5H w/1x12 cabinet, and a Kingsley Jester pedal for preamp boost, overdrive and distortion. I'm using this as my bedroom rig. Sounds fabulous! The GVT5H runs at 5 watts or 2.5 watts.
jubilee 2553 is great,,little and packs a punch
