Question:
I have a 30 watt marshall artist with one 12ax7 and 2 el34 tubes. How much lower would the output volume be? 30 watts is way too loud for me.

Answer:
The JJ EL34II tube will offer earlier power tube breakup than a standard JJ EL34 but will not change the overall output of your amplifier in a significant way. Both tubes are rated at 25W so the difference would be in the plate structure which allows you to achieve a slightly tamer output with earlier breakup.
