Yes, I tried the search function, but only found references to amps having either A or A/B, but never the difference between the two.

So, what is the difference between a Tube-A and a Tube-A/B amp?

has to do with the power supply, dunno exactly what.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

i think that a has smoother, lighter distortion.

on one of the peavey valve amps, it says "morphs between A and A/B class power for tones from country to crunch to metal" or something like that. i think A/B has heavier distortion.

Definitely not a noob kind of question lol. I have a Valveking, which has the feature mentioned above ^^, and I still dont know exactly how to use it properly. I just keep it on A/B.

i think it has to do with the tubes. lets say an amp has 4 power tubes. if it's class A, all the tubes are on all the time. if it's class A/B, then depending on how loud it is, 2 or 4 are used.

hope i'm right
