    Hello!

    ABM has both. There´s knob for clean(solid) to grind(valve), and you can adjust it how you like it. It´s very nice.

    Despite being a tube freak, I like the clean side (solid-state FET) better. It's clean, warm, and articulate. Half and half ain't bad either, to add some tube grit.

    My ideal Ashdown would lose the tube, lose the meter, and lose the sub-synth, and keep it simple like a Merlin 600.

    It looks very classy............
