I love tube amps but the lightness, ease of use, lower voltages, and clean sound of some solid state amps have seriously got me shopping. The rolands, quilters, and acoustic brand ones I've seen sound amazing, and the new Fender tonemasters have gotten nothing but great reviews. I have been coveting an old polytone as well for jazz. One big advantage of tube amps is the ease of servicing them (but only if they're on a ptp board). Much easier than soldering to a printed circuit board, in my estimation.
