Its deceptively loud. In my basement, and in a decent sized bar, I've used my 1x12 with the Brake Lite on 2 clicks. 2 years ago, we played at a private campground. Outside, set up on the front porch of a lakehouse/office building, unmiked. I thought I'd REALLY be able to crank it up. Nope, still 2 clicks. That level was where the "stage" mix was right with the drum volume. Really, regardless of the venue, THAT is as loud as any band ever SHOULD be. Remember, this was outside, no walls, miserably hot humid summer night, playing to a big audience of drunk campers on golf carts in a gravel parking area.
For the type of music the Z28 was built for, its PLENTY loud. I cant see me playing a gig where I'd honestly need MORE, and if I did, the whole band would be miced to get the drum volume right. I too have been intrigued about owning a Rt66, and while it's a different sound due to different tubes, it would be TOO much. As would the KT45. They'd be pedal platforms only.

A quick tip since I noticed you have guitar straps between your amps in order to keep the rubber feet from discoloring your Tolex. You can find those round, thick, felt-like pads at Lowe’s that you would put under chair legs to protect your wood floor. Attach those to the rubber feet and you are good to go. Never had trouble with a head scooting around in a cabinet while playing from vibration.
Congrats on those two amps!
Thank you, the Ghia I bought has them already. I was cleaning up my "Man Cave" and found a package of them and put them on.
Or I think I've seen people use those cool disposable cardboard-like drink coasters from their favorite bar. Might work, too.
In any case, I'm seein' some nice amps up & down this page.
