seriously contemplating on buying one of these little fellas. Just curious how much more headroom I would achieve if I changed out the preamp tube to a 5751 and used a head with a 12 inch weber silver bell 75 watt speaker? any opinions? I think it would make for more headroom and a little later break up

i use one this way, and have posted a vid here in the past at a club with a loud drummer. i DID use a pedal with it, and the preamp tube was a 12ax7. i AM using it this weekend at a place but i have changed the 12ax7 to a 5751 without as pedal and will try to not use the attenuator (12aY7 actually sounded really good, clear/clean, but i play with a loud drummer.) i am also using a green beret WGS spkr (25 watt), but i could see how a 75 watt spkr would be perfect. i will have mine on a stand aimed at me.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
