I got this amp awhile ago and LOVE its look and sound but I have not had a chance to crank er at rehearsal yet.. does it have good headroom for a stoner rock band with its EL84 30 watt rating ?

I would think that tweed mode with tube rectifiers would get you there...

there is no Tweed mode just 30 watt (solid state rectifier) 15 watt (tube rectifier) and 5 watt (tube rectifier Class A)

Does having a tube rectifier give it more headroom though ?

You'll have less headroom with the tube rectifier.

And I learned something today! I just assumed the Special had a tweed mode like its bigger brother.

Gads come back! How's it doing?
I can only imagine 4-10's has to be pretty hefty and broad sounding bump up compared to the single 12.
Now loading it into the car -that'd be another thing altogether. :)
