A tube pedal wont make a ss amp sound like a tube amp. There ment to be used on tube amps.

Yeah, I looked into this too, there is really no way around it...

I gotta get some cash together for a good tube amp.

Try a Boss Blues Driver. Tube pedals might help, but wont do the job all the way.

To TS: if you want a good tube sound, a Tech 21 Sansamp GT2 Tube Amp emulator would be good. But they're mean to be put directly in front of a power amp... like a PA system. It's basically like a substitute for an amp.
I'm getting one after Xmas to put through the FX loop on my VK.

But that pedal is $189USD, which is pointless b/c you could easily save a hundred more and get a used Valveking...

i voted new amp.

To get tube tone you need a tube amp; simple as that really. As a cheaper alternative you could try a hybrid amp like the Vox Valvetronix or get a multi fx unit like the Tonelab etc. The only trouble with that is that they don't work well with guitar amps so you'd need to play it through PA speakers. Mind you, some of these things through PA speakers can sound quite convincing. Most people judge them on their performance through a guitar amp and they were never designed to be used that way.

Get a tube amp, I'd say.
The pedals sound good, but they only really sound good through a tube amp.
Just grab yourself a small tube combo and if you have some extra cash, something like a Boss Blues Driver, a Digitech Bad Monkey, or an Ibanez Tube Screamer.

Get a good 5W tube amp (Valveking Royal and Blackhearts come to mind) instead of a pedal.
