My friend calls his set up a *Tube Tweeter*

consists of a tiny tube amp on top of a large solid state..

He plays a 150 watt B-52 2x12 combo .Solid State
The funny thing is that he has a 5 watt Palamino v8 on top of it.
They are connected in stereo via a splitter.
The solid state gives him the crunch he needs with a touch of tube..
and the tube screams over the SS for his solos..

What do you guys think of *Tube tweeters*?
Would you laugh at him if you saw him at a gig?

Has anyone famous ever done this before?
I bet Charlie Brown's teacher's name was Mrs.Hammett
