I've been following the activities on the "Tube Amps.. Why" post. Great stuff. Lots of great info, opinions, and passion.! The latest Guitar Player mag has a thing on Danny Kootch. You may need to be of a certain age to recognize his name but suffice it to say he's a studio maniac, been around a long time and knows his stuff. Here is a piece of a paragraph in the article I found interesting and would love to hear some comments about His current amp of choice for performance is a 2X12 Roland Blues Cube Artist "I think it's the best amp I have played through, except for the old Princeton" he says. "You can tune it and get a good sound in any room. It's solid state, but I defy anyone to tell me they can distinguish between it and a tube amp. It sounds very warm, rich and tubey"
