The VT's use a preamp tube in the power section I believe.

how does that work:S

The signal goes through the tube to "tubify" it a little. After that it's amplified by the SS power section.

Edit: At least that's how I think it works.

He already answered you - it's in the power amp section. There's nothing special in using a preamp tube there, since it's not actually amplifying the signal to the levels you hear it. Besides, some low wattage amps use preamp tubes as poweramp tubes, it doesn't really matter from what I know - they're just lower powered.

(correct me if I'm wrong here)

I think the reason they used a Preamp tube in the power amp is so they could make it push-pull without using 2 power tubes (I think that's what the VOX site says)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
