This is just wrong everyone is agreeing with you. Where are the tubes or nothing people? The folks who say I know it isn’t tubes and therefore think I might perceive a difference?
I made popcorn to read the gnashing of teeth on this thread and nothing. LOL
There's also the "a solid state amp shouldn't cost more than a tube amp" crap. A good product will cost more. The Tonemaster is a good solid state amp. A Vox Night Train NT-15 is not a good tube amp. I'd pay more for a great solid state amp than a low-end tube amp.I don't think Tone Master amps themselves are divisive, it is the age old "analog" vs "digital" debate.
