Yeah, yeah, I know this is a bassist forum, but I've come to trust a lot of you folks much better than I would strangers on a guitar forum. And I think bassists as a group are less dogmatic about tube vs. solid state amp technology. I double on guitar sometimes, but my only guitar amp is a Marshall 6101 combo, a wonderful sounding but fragile and very heavy beast. I've played through SS Marshalls, but they are basically entry-level products that sound like sh*t to me. Are there any actually decent SS guitar amps out there with a little grit?
