I used to play SS in the 80's. then i did the whole tube thing for the last 11-12 years.
I like both really but for crunch. its solid state. i hav enever played a tube amp that could give me the crunch i need!

now tube amps are very sweet for tone i am kinda in the middle right now.
My new carvin power amp is sold state and its here to stay. it is being juiced by the SansAmp PSA 1 and thats all i need for gain:-)

I try not to discount anything until I've tried it. One SS amp may sound like crap and another may sound pretty sweet. Its' the same with tube amps, IMHO.

* So far, I've heard more tube amps that were pleasing to the ear than SS amps but I don't write off an amp just because of it's components. Rock on with your favorite flavor is my take on it. *:loco:

I know hardcore Rivera guys that use these as small club amps or for hauling to practice.
