Pushing a tube amp
is it bad for a tube amp to be pushed hard for long amounts of time? i'm using a 20 watt Hughes & Kettner at band practice, pushed to about 8 (out of 10) on the clean channel for the whole practice. is this bad for my amp? sadly, i cant really lower the volume or my sound just kinda gets lost...
also, would buying a 2x12 extension cab be a viable solution to this little problem? i wanna be able to play my clean parts without experiencing tube overdrive (as nice as it sounds, it can be a little annoying)
