Unfortunately there is a distinct and particular sound that can only be achieved with vacuum tubes.

Some get close - but there really is no substitute for well made tube amplifiers for guitar, bass, music recording and music play back in the home.
Vacuum tubes may seem old fashioned to some - but you can't get that sound without them.
If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
