Yes, i believe Boss has done a good thing with this Katana series.

I drive all my effects into a Tech 21 Liverpool as my "amp" and then into a Cabzeus......straight to the board/PA from there. And I LOVE the tones I get. I keep a Deluxe Reverb around for those times when a tube amp is necessary, but hardly ever turn it on anymore.

I have an old PEAVEY Bandit 112 Shieffield at home, Transtube technology is very good.

The question is really too general. There are a lot of SS amps out there and you are just going to have to try a couple and see what you think. Find a later model Fender, Roland, or Vox for starters.

A few years ago, I bought a red stripe Peavey Studio Pro but I found it couldn't cut it with our heavy handed drummer. I wanted it to work so badly as my old body was getting tired of lugging my old Blues Deluxe up and down the stairs. Besides, I was starting to have some issues with the BD at that time. So I found a red stripe Bandit for $100. Reliable as heck but it weighed just as much as the BD. Once I got the BD repaired, I sold the Bandit....big mistake. Shoulda sold the BD and kept the Bandit as it had a great clean sound and took pedals very well. Don't get me wrong, I still like my BD but the Bandit doesn't require a lot of maintenance or tubes.

In my new band, the drummer has a nice light touch and I've started using my Studio Pro....just like the Bandit but easier on my back and best of all....reliable. The Transtube technology also works pretty well.

Peavey makes damn good amplifiers. Unfortunately, many guitar players look down on Peavey which has caused them to sell quite cheaply on the used market. However, people are starting to take notice and prices are starting to rise up here in Canada. I sold my Bandit for $80 more than I paid after a year and I've noticed them running for up to $300 nowadays.

I played my AC30CC2 for the first time since I bought my Katana 100. After about 10 minutes I went back to the Katana lol!
If you havenít tried one youíre seriously missing out.

If, for some reason, I decide to shuck my Blues Jr., I'm going Katana. This is proof of how good they sound...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JNZUYYcew0

I agree Dana....after trying one out at my local Long and Mcquade, I was very impressed. But I couldn't bring home another amp as I need to thin the herd first. I've got amps that I rarely use plus my son's amps and guitars that I've been babysitting. It's too cluttered in my basement. The good news is that he put an offer in on a house today which means he can take his stuff with him and I can get my Katana 100!! The bad news is I lose the use of his guitars and amps!

There's always an upside and a downside!

You also have good taste in Stereo gear,
I still have the original NAD 3020 amp/pre-amp and Rec.(late 70's)
The little amp that started it all.

I have a 75 wt Line 6 Spider Jam that has started me playing again with the jam tracks and looping and recording features.
I may look for a small good sounding tube amp and leave the effects to a Zoom G1X pedal and the Boss BR80 unit I picked up.
