Well, I'm now a couple months into my Boss Katana 1x12 100w and my last "purchased" tube amp is gone. I'm now a believer! No, the Katana isn't perfect but it's close enough in its tubey tone & feel for this old tube snob with worn out fingers. The Katana is plug & play...no more holding my breath as I flip on my tube amp's standby switch. No matter how good the amp, ALL tubes eventually die, some quietly, some not...and mine always seem to croak at the worst possible time, sometimes accompanied with an unintended special effects fog coming from the amp. The silicon gap has closed...I'm a believer .
