For a TUBE preamp, which would be better for a warm thick death metal tone?

is SS even plausible?...would it maintain the quality of the tube preamp distortion?

uses are practice/small gigs
For practice and small gigs it seems like a tube power amp would be unreasonable, solidstate is fine and introduces little coloration, so as long as you're happy with the tone of your pre, a solidstate poweramp would maintain that.

edit: I guess it depends on the idea of practice I suppose - the 20-20 could work, but is a bit loud for my idea of practice.
