help on transformer wattage

I want to know what wattage capacity voltage transformer i would need for a laneylc15r (15 watts rms tube combo). I am considering a 300 watt transformer (to change the voltage from 110 to 220 where i live) and think it woulb be enough considering i was reccommended right here in the forum a 100 wat transformer.
If someone knows about it iīll be thankfull for answers.

Re: help on transformer wattage

you need to match the INPUT - not the output wattage, it should have the details on the amp somewhere - perhaps a plate ?

my amp has written next to the input lead

240VAC ~ 50Hz

and its a 100 watt solid state amp.
