Default Peak Power duration in guitar amp

Hi,

Electric guitar music officially has peak power that is 10 times the average power.

-Do you know how long the longest peak power duration could last, ?....i.e., the longest length of time that the guitar amp could be drawing peak power?

It doesn't matter.

Heavy distortion as used in modern metal essentially kills all the dynamics. 100% of peak power is a good approximation.
'Clean' electric guitar sound fades exponentially after attack.
