ive been playing guitar for over 20 years and have pretty much always used tube amps for all the reasons we all know to be true about them and playing guitar through them. Not too long ago my sister started getting into listening and collecting old vinyl. To say she is into it is putting it mildly. Now that she has her new turntable she has all of the sudden gotten obsessed with tubes and getting a tube preamp for her record player. I told her that was stupid because the same things that make tube amps so great when playing guitar through them would make them bad for listening to music through. For example as a guitar player you want your tubes pushed to saturation so you can get that tube distortion but when you are listening to music any distortion whatsoever (coming from your system) is unwanted. You want to cleanest and clearest reproduction of the sound correct? It might make your music sound a little warmer but I just can’t see the benefits to using tube amps when listening to music. Who is right and who is wrong and why exactly? Thank you.
