I guess you must've missed my other comment in this thread.
Cost is no longer a limitation, with the Valve Junior and Blackheart amps, and plenty of used amps like Fender Blues Jr., Peavey Classic 30, and Crate Vintage Club 30.
Comments about what the "pros" use seem silly.
Such comments are far from silly to those who are concerned about amp tone. CLEAN or distorted, I prefer tubes.
It's a beginner group.
Are you a beginner? Look around... PLENTY of experience mixed in. And why shouldn't a beginner benefit from MY experience???
When I started, it didn't take me long to learn that I preferred tube amps. My opinion has never changed.
Less than 10% of these folks will play long enough toupgrade their equipment.
Speculation on your part. But I speculate that over 10% here have ALREADY upgraded gear at some time in their life. I speculate that over 10% of people reading this ALREADY own tube amps.
I doubt that 1% of them will be pros.
Who said anything about becoming a pro? My point was that pros generally have experience and know what they want. And that's generally TUBES.
The few pros I know are acoustic players. None of them would lug around a tube amp, solid state is much lighter. You seem to assume that everyone is playing distorted electric stuff but that is not true.
TALK ABOUT ASSUMPTIONS!
Since when are tubes only good for distortion? As I said above, clean or distorted, I prefer tubes.
