Whats up with a VOX AD50VT Valvetronix-Do I have to replace the valves every 2 years? If so how much does it cost to replace them on this model? What exactly are valves - Are they a tube like preamp coupled with a SSL unit? Valves are not true tubes are they?

Does anyone like / dislike this amp? Can I get by playing this amp with a crapy drummer until I can afford what I want - A true A-1 Tube amp (bling Bling)?

Valves are tubes. Same thing, different name. Ill let others explain, Im gunna go grab something to eat lol.
The Valvetronix series are hybrid (part solid state/part tube). I'm gonna go get something to eat also and let another person explain.
