The Super Champ is a 15 watt tuber (with DSP), and I'm wondering if that would leave me comfortable headroom playing in a full band scenario with drums et al. Any thoughts?
...so ever since then, I always hang on to the buckle.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. I'm not sure what's up with so many 15 watt tube amps out there. Too big for the bedroom and too small for the band...??
For lower volumes though, keep in mind tubes sound better at high volume. Not going to get all that tube tone at low volumes if you're planning on using it just for practice.
