I just cant decide what format of amp to go for. Im deciding on either a 1 x 12 combo with a 4 x 12 cab for gigs, or just a half stack. All Tube. This is my situation:

At home i need to play pretty quiet

At band practice we play quite loud, there is a marshall cab there but i would prefer to get the same sound i get at home.

At gigs i would use a 4 x 12 cab.

So the question is, will a combo plugged into a cab sound as good as a half stack, or is half stack the way to go for best tone. The combos r smaller and ive heard something about them not being as beefy when plugged into a cab as a normal head.

I heard something about heads having bigger transformers. Someone was comparing the Engl screamer and fireball - the screamer is combo size. They sed this effected the tone. So is a head the way to go for the best tone.
