bee1Question:

In this age of technology, why do so many guitarists still want to use tube amplifiers? I just don't get it Aunty Bee. I've got all those amps in my VSTs and can have any at the touch of a button. Why do these okes still insist on dragging these heavy boxes around?

Stevie from Jozi.

Answer:

Tubes are primitive technology, but then so is a Stradivarius. Despite technological wizardry a half-century beyond tube technology, tone purists universally agree that the fat, warm presence and gravelly distortion of a genuine tube amp can't be beat. There is no replacement for a shaking speaker on air my Dah-ling. Moving air is where the magic happens.
