Does it make sense to sell my tube amp (Mesa Buster 200) for a light-weight, pint-size, digi-simulation, solid-state head? My friend recently bought a Yamaha BBt500H which I got the chance to try at a gig. I found it very warm, loud, clear and punchy. Even the "tube grit" sounded more than OK to me. I'm intirgued by the reliability and portability of this head compared to my somewhat bulky tube-amp. I have a GK MB150s that I use for double bass and smaller gigs, and I seem to really like the solid-state clarity that I also found in the BBt500H Still... Theres something about a heavy tube head. Maybe it's just the "look & feel" of it, or maybe there's something more Also... If I sell my Mesa, I could easily afford the Yamaha as well as a good tube preamp, maybe even an Avalon, for the money. Or some other candy....or a nice gift for my wife. So my question, or my head-ache, is; should I look beyond the imagery of a cool tube head and go for the modern stuff or should I stick with the tradition...? Any pointers?
