Whats the diff between a tube amp and a combo amp what makes the tube amp better?

hmm, where do I begin....... amps come in either solid state or tube varieties

the structure of the amp can be either a combo or a stack (head and cab)


you can have:
-solid state combo
-tube combo
-solid state stack
-tube stack

you see?

there are lots of threads about tubes vs solid state already on UG

a combo has the amplifier section and speakers in one contained unit as such


stacks have the amplifier section (or head) on top of speaker cabinets as such


hope this helps

Can't forget the tube/SS hybrids. Never played one, though.

Uh, both tube amps and solid state amps come in combo and head form. A combo just means that the amp and the speaker/s are in the same box.

I got a transtube if that's what you're talking about G-Rock... it's actually got a pretty sweet tone but apparently I don't have to maintain the tubes so I'm not rewarded with capabilities..

(is it true overdrive sounds crap on a transtube?)

^That thing is actually all SS.
