There was a post a few pages back lauding the simple interface of a basic tube amp. That's one thing I like about it, too. If I were a pro player and had a sound man and guitar guy, and they set up my rig and made it sound wonderful through a Kemper or whatever, I would be fine with that. But since I have to set up, maintain, and tear down my own rig I prefer to keep things really simple. Guitar, tiny pedal board with about 4 pedals on it, amp with just one channel in use. A Kemper would not make sense for me because I wouldn't need its features at all, and it would therefore be unnecessarily expensive and complex. A three-channel Boogie also doesn't make sense for me. I once had a pretty simple 2x12 Crate combo amp that was SS. It didn't sound nearly as good as my tube amps do, but it was good enough for gigging. At the time I was in a reggae band and I mainly needed a decent clean sound, which it delivered. It wasn't that much lighter than a tube amp, but it was certainly cheaper and required zero maintenance. If I had zero amps in my possession today there's a good chance I would try a DV Mark head. So lightweight and compact! But since I already have amps I haven't felt the need to go there yet.
