Solid state is (Generally) cheaper, lighter, and it isn't bad with cleans.
Tubes are (Generally) more expensive, heavier, break more easily, but sound great all around.
I like tube.

It really depends on the manufacturer though, some good solid state amps are on par with some of the cheaper tube amps.

Also, wrong forum bud.
