Back when I was doing gigs, I would set the volume on my Marshall (JCM 800 2205 model)at 4 and that was plenty. Occasionally, when we played a larger venue , I would do 4.5 , but that was mainly for my own sound and being able to hear myself adequately.
The JCM 900 that I had briefly a couple of years ago, was about the same as it was a 50 watter also. That one only saw action at a friends shop building where we (old band mates from several bands would get together and play) and never needed to be cranked up much.
