    in the current context, it’s running “straight up”. No distortion, no mid-knob pull boost. Just clean, a touch of reverb, volume low enough so it matches up with an upright acoustic bass and another guitar.

    Well I've been a SS guy for years now. But I recently bought a Carvin V3M 50w tube amp just to fool around with at home for fusioney stuff. Nice sounds. And I like having the 3 channels. From clean, to grit, to lead, without the need for a pedal in front. And folks should understand there are many SS amps that are not class D. Dan Pearce made some of the most wonderful tubey sounding SS amps back in the 80s before the proliferation of class D. Had a huge toroidal transformer. Enough power to knock down a building. But no tubes.

    Bought myself a hybrid Koch Jupiter last summer. Really nice. So tube or SS bit of both.
    The Koch is a bit warmer compared to my Roland jc-40. Although the chorus is unbeatable on a Jazzchorus i'll go for the Koch.

    Use it with my Ibbys (2616, jp20, as120) and a homemade telecaster.

    My main amp is a Fender Vibrolux. But lately I've been using a Tech21 Fly Rig plugged directly into the desk. I'm happy with the tone.
    Since this is such a pragmatic and cheap solution I kind of don't trust myself so I keep bugging our organ player "What do you think about the guitar tone?". His answer is always "I haven't paid attention" so I think it is at least good enough.
