Heads usually have more tubes, which will make them sound "beefier"

And full size transformers too.

I asked people on other forums if they ever pulled the 2 outside tubes to make a 100 watt head 50 watts and if that works well. Pretty much everyone who replied said they did it, it didn't sound as good so they put them back in.

That said, a good combo amp can be your friend. A 2x12 combo is loud enough to make you go deaf and more easily portable, and wont make you go deaf as fast as a 200 watt half or fullstack.
