so what exactly do you need to achieve that warm sound that you hear from a tube amp?
Is one power tube enough?
one preamp tube ?
a combination ?
or is it a case of more is better?
do other component's matter more then we think?
Is a matter of design?
something else?

It's a very complex combination of things...

Stop making dumb threads like this.

You don't want to learn, you want to be told simple answers to complex questions... That's not learning, it's just being stupid. Take your stupidity elsewhere.

It wouldn't surprise me if his disappearance had something to do with a mental asylum.

Lesson 1 - Go away.

Now practice.

I'll give a serious answer here.
Each and every component in a tube amp contributes to its sound.

To put it another way:
A single bad link in a chain can contribute to the entire chain being of poor quality.

And if the design itself is bad, good components aren't going to help.


Now, maybe stop being insulting in every thread you start and people might actually want to help you.

This.

It's not like tube amps are warmer, the problem lies in your expectations of how amps should sound.

It's in your mind you know.
If you don't get the warmth from a solid state amp it's because your mind isn't prepared to recieve the warmth a solid state amp has to offer.

the reason is actually that SS guitar amps suck pretty bad in general, though they would sound good if someone made them good

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

tubes get very warm, even to the point where you can burn yourself by touching them with an unexposed piece of skin. Therefore the sound is best described as warm

Solid state however is as cold as a jilted lover. The sound can therefore be described as cold and bitter.

If you want to understand what I'm talking about, stick your tongue on a glowing tube. Then open the back of a running solid state amp and start touching the bigger electronic components in there. You will immediately hear the difference in tone

Just poor a lil gasoline on your amp, strike a match and enjoy the warmth of tubes.

Can a mod close this thread, thus denying moronthegreek the pleasure of closing it himself when he's had enough fun trolling in it?

Apparently a tube amp.

Two of the warmest amps ever made
1. The Fender Champ - one preamp tube, one power tube.
2. Mesa Boogie Mark <insert personal favourite> - a gazillion of everything and shit you've never even imagined; and there'll be three of them.

Stupid question is stupid.

Dan had the right idea. Let the catting begin!
