Hi guys.

In case anyone is interested, im selling my Marshall 50w stereo valve power amp that i've had for a few years on ebay. This power amp has been in my main rig for a while and on 'Forever advancing...... legions' it was used to record all the guitar parts on the album as well as some rehearsal and live shows.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 3725624674

It's basically two 50watt marshall head power amps in one rack case.

EDIT: I'll pass this along to some people who might be interested.

You should put "formerly used by Leon of Death Metal Stars Mithras" in the description - seriously it'll get more people buying it, even if they dont know who you are :lol:

What made you switch from tube to solid state?

One of the main advantages of solid state over tube is the ability to react faster to musical transients.

I think he switched because solid state was louder ;)

I switched so i could avoid the compression effect valve amps give. When playing at high volumes valve amps bottom out, and no matter how much boost you try and put through them (i.e a lead) it doesnt come through proportionately when near their max volume (i.e leads dont come through very well, and the effects seem louder than they shud be). Also they colour the sound quite a lot.

So i switched to solid state to enable the leads to jump out more when playing live and for increased volume and clarity.

This is the first time I have heard positive things about solid state amps. Everywhere I go I always hear/read how much tube amps are better than solid state. I currently use a solid state power amp in my rack set up which doesnt sound bad. I have been looking at tube power amps a lot (mainly on ebay) and they are much more expensive then solid state but I dont want to spend that much money if its not that much better than solid state.

Solid state is generally cheaper, easier/cheaper to maintain, lighter, smaller, more reliable, less breakable, doesn't colour the sound as much, etc. So lots of positive things. Not colouring the sound may be considered negative by some though, of course. When you said you always hear/read about tube amps being better, i'm sure you meant you hear/read that they sound better :wink:
