From what I've heard, the clean channel is all tube, but the OD channel is only half tube. They're great amps for the price, too. Haven't used one yet, but that's what everyone is saying.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

i didn't like it. sounded like just a solid state amp. no pick dynamics, clean channel just sounded real thin and trebly, OD channel sounded a bit too stiff.

I have heard they're hybrid, but with a tube power amp, which strikes me as better than a tube pre-amp. I'd still try and play one first.

If its the super champ XD you are talking about, it has a digital circuit in the beginning that leads into a 12AX7 tube preamp stage and then a push pull 6V6 output stage. If you are handy with a soldering iron its easy to mod a switch in to bypass the digital modeller and have a 100% tube signal.

Most people that I know that have gotten em have had good things to say about them.

I haven't played it, but I have to say that I'm wary of a 15W tube power amp from Fender with a digital pre-amp section that sells for less than the amazingly simple Pro Jr.

Hey, maybe it's great. But I'm skeptical.

I think it's more likely that the 12ax7 is the phase inverter, seeing as you need a phase inverter either way.
