Ever since solid state amplifiers emerged in the 1960's the debate has raged over which is better for bass, tube amps or solid state amps?
For us bass players the choice isn't quite as volatile as it is for guitar players, many of whom would rather drink poison than play through a solid state amp. Still, there are those bassists that swear by that natural warm, fat tone that a tube amp delivers.
So the question is, what's the difference between them and what's best for you? Oh yeah....there's also a third option.
