Right now I'm running my beautiful MIA Strat through a Roland Cube-60 and it sounds great, but if I want to get the most out of my guitar do I need a tube amp like the Fender Blues Deluxe?

Basically, I'm not sure if the improvement in tone between the Cube-60 and the Blues Deluxe would be worth the extra dough, plus I'd lose the Cube-60's on-board effects and would have to invest in a multi-fx pedal to use in conjunction with the Blues Deluxe.

Alternatively, I could get a BOSS GT-10 to use with my Cube-60's clean channel (which is incredible), but I'm pretty sure I still wouldn't be able to match the tone of the Blues Deluxe.

What say ye?

The Blues Deluxe would be a big step up, you'll realise the difference in tone straight away. However, the OD channel isn't that great, but the cleans are gorgeous.

And you should just buy single decent effects that you need, multi FX boards don't sound that great and aren't as tweakable compared to single pedals.

Go to a guitar shop and try out a load of valve amps and see what you like.
