I would like a tube amp, partly just because they are easier to fix. I have three solid state amps currently: A keyboard amp for my keyboard which works ok for that purpose, a Rocktron 50 watt model from the nineties, very heavy gain and lots of volume when it worked normally. Now it only works when it is open and I poke the pc board with a chopstick (amp repair guy said it probably costs more to fix it than I paid for it), and a Fender Starfire amp someone (who had good intentions, but no clue about guitars) gave me as a gift which worked twice before starting to cut out.
Plus I like the way you can overdrive the tubes and the way a tube amp sounds. Of course it does mean having to replace the tubes every so often when they burn out, but people say you have to replace guitar strings too... we shall see.
I would like to get a nice entry level tube amp and I will be looking forward to seeing your reviews throughout the year.
