    I have a '65 bandmaster (ab763)... Other than the mid control on the trem channel, why would I want a showman of the same era if I'm to run it with only two power tubes? What would I gain?

    more clean headroom and more low end thump. You still have much bigger OT and PT to consider. BTW, pulling the tubes will keep it cleaner longer as the transformers now have half the power tubes they were designed for to contend with.

    I also tend to think that bigger amps sound bigger even at the same volume as a lower wattage amp.
