wats so good about tube amps is that they have a uniquie and sometimes have a much better sound then solid state amps
they work with distortion some what better and have a clearer tone but some people like solid state more

It is when they break up. Valve amps have a slightly compresses signal giving a more appealing sound than an SS breakup, in my opinion. There are plenty of SS users who love their amps.
Love in technicolour, sprayed out on walls
Well I've been pounding at the pavement
'Til there's nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger
In a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter
Loves a winner to fall
