If you are that concerned about your sound that you come here to ask all kinds of questions about amps.....

You will have much better sound with a 1x12 tube combo than a SS half stack.

NO, there is no buts and no I am not wrong. Shutup!

For the money, yes, you'll get more tone for your money with a tube combo, than you will with a solid state half-stack. But you're saying it as though tube is ALWAYS better, which in some instances its not, therefore this thread fails.

stop trolling. Tube amps are usually a better option, but not always.

That's balls. If a tube amp breaks, it's 99% of the time an easy fix. If SS breaks, you have to get a new amp.


This thread is just as anoying as the threads asking about SS half stacks.

The Super Champ XD is a hybrid amp.... im not sure whether you're saying, "i love this SS amp and it beats some low-end tube amps," or "this little tube amp beats a MG stack." Both statements are true, except its neither SS nor Tube.

Uhmm, there's more than one Fender Champ, and I'm fairly sure he was talking about the Fender Champ 5 watter.

Guys, what is this talk about "maintenance" with tube amps? Buy a new set of tubes every year and a half and you're all set.

your own thread also you fail because the jc120 has better cleans then every tube amp and it is a solid state. also the line 6 vetta sounds amazing and can dial in many tones so you FAIL

hmmm.... I disagree heavily with the JC120 statement.... Better cleans than EVERY tube amp? It doesn't even have better cleans than every solid state amp.... that's a bandwagon you don't want to jump on. JC cleans are very clean indeed, and are very dependent on the guitar you are using, because the amp adds very little coloring, other than the dual amping effect.

Tubes aren't always better trust me. Thats what I thought because of all of you guys on UG saying tubes are always better ALWAYS. Well then can you explain to me why it is my old SS amp blows away my Peavey Windsor at everything but being louder and cleaner? I don't want it to be loud anyways because the tone on the Windsor is just suck! I hate that thing really I do.

Tube amps can suck when the volume is too low. My guess is that you have the 100 watt half-stack which is way way way to much for home use. Even 5 tube watts is plenty.
#30
I suppose, for the most part, that a low endtube is better than a low end SS, a high end tube is better than a high end SS, and the midrange stuff is a bit of both.
Certain SS amps can beat certain tube amps at certain stuff, and vice versa.
It's all down to preference, music style, guitar and settings.

lol yeah thats such a smiley aint it buddy? I haven't been on in forever and that was back when I was retarded because I was happy that I had a tube amp and I thought it sounded good. However now I use my old SS amp more than that because the Windsor is just crap tone. Seriously for the 3 band EQ to do anything the knobs have to be from 8-12 on the dial and then its just overpowered and sounds like crap. Let alone the cab doesn't help this at all with the crap speakers that are in it.

Have you played it at all with the master volume at least past 8 o' clock or so?

And what would be some good tube 1x12 combos that can do metal? Dont say Valveking because that blows balls for metal.
#36
Yes I have, I used a limiter and had it all the way up and just tried to play it then however it did sound a little better but the stock speakers in the cab just don't cut it, those are the main tone suckage. That and the pre-amp eq system which sux.
