i find myself cranking 100w tube setups to ten.. but my band is insanely loud and the guitars need to sear.... a 50w tube halfstack should do okay for small shows. for medium to large shows you'll probably want assistance from the PA. i prefer most of my sound to come from my amp, mic'ing through a PA can suck tone really bad, you just lose quality... but it's still important in certain situations because PA assistance will help you out in volume and an evenly projected sound.

if you might not want powetube saturation, some people suprisingly dislike it, either for really super cleans or a colder lead tone.

but 50w is still fucking loud.... 100w is a bit louder and much cleaner....
