Can someone please explain to me the difference between tube amps and other amps, and why everyone thinks they are better. Also, does the "tube" term apply to anything else (not sure if that makes sence lol)
People think im insane becuase i am frowning all the time.

Thanks jb_designs.
Ya, search first of all. And I think there is a sticky or something like this in the guitar gear or some other forum.

Tube amps use.... tubes..... Solid State amps just imitate the sound of tubes. Also known as valves, one's american and ones british, i forget which way round. I used to think valve and tube amps were different things but they aren't.
