But all amps are voiced for a particular sound. So SS amps can be voiced to sound like tube amps. Play a lot of them and pick what you like best for your situation and budget.
Software doesn’t sound like tubes.
The only way they can't feel the same is if you stick your hands in the back of the amp.Well if it was early 2000s i would have agreed with you but in 2021 they have the sound down cold.Obviously they dont feel like tubes(and they never will) but as far as the sound goes its pretty much a done deal.For years now people record tracks with software along with real gear and nobody ever tells(or will ever be able to).
Thanks, I had to look up the Tubemeisters. Looks interesting. But technically -- and I mean "technically" in its proper technological sense -- both of your examples are extraneous to what I'm saying about each amp type. In order to accommodate headphones, the Tubemeister offers "tube-like" tones. In other words, it derives from a solid state scenario. Unless I misunderstood the quick read I did on that amp.The same can be said for tube amps that are designed with that feature. Like the Hughes and Kettner Tubemeisters.
Sure you can, try a Quilter or a ZT amp.
I didn't say a tube amp wouldn't sound good quiet. I said you can't run them with headphones.That's funny because I can play my tube Soldano Astroverb at whisper volume and it sounds amazing, but my SS Fender Princeton Chorus is loud enough to hurt my ears at the very lowest volume setting.
A lot of people put up with poorly designed preamp sections because they've never experienced a good one.

How many tube amp users flop a mic in front of it and run the mic to the gig PA system .. which is a very loud, very clean, solid state amp? Isn't that like getting a gain stage from a pedal played into a clean amp too?
we're supposed to practice?i have a very nice tube amp. i mostly use my DAW at home.
the most significant and lasting improvements to my sound come from (now and always) practicing techniques such as touch and attack and fiddling creatively with the volume and tone on my guitar as i play, and learning evermore about harmony.
i see zero improvement gained from arguing with people on the internet about what i ought to buy instead.
