ADA Micro Tube amp: anyone tried it?

i'm gonna buy an ADA Micro Tube 100w amp, just wondering if it's a nice thing to add in my rack (ADA MP-1 + BBE Sonic Maximizer).

thanks in advance

Well, I have had my microtube 200's for about 10 years and have had no problems with them. Only thing I ever do is change tubes and thats about it. The ADA stuff really compliments each other, so you should be happy with the microtube 100.

I had the micro tube 100 for about 5 years, but that was quite a while ago. I never had a problem with it that I can remember. I wouldn't mind getting one again or the 200 version just for the fact that they are small and seem to be pretty good.

I had the 100 for a while...not bad for the money. It was definitely warmer that the SS marshall (8008?) I had previously. I can say that the upgrade to a PV C50/50 was yet a greater improvement in tone (but it's more $$, bigger, and heavier).

It seems to be a popular and fairly well liked amp, but I'd never get one on principle: it's NOT a tube power amp. The ADS ads years ago said stuff like "real power amps glow in the dark" - that's funny, since it's a MOSFET solid state amp with little 12ax7 preamp tubes stuck in front of it. Thus, all the accolades afforded real tube power amp circuits do not apply to this critter.

Still, if you want a decent amp and it sounds good to you, go for it.
