Is 50 watt half as loud as 100 watts?

No! It is a common misconception. I often hear people talk about how a 50 watt Marshall is more appropriate for most people, since it's half the wattage. Really? It sure isn't half as loud!

The perceived volume difference between 50 and 100 watts is actually very small.

Enjoy your loud amp(s)!!
