Re: Tube distortion with SS devices
I read it, he's not attacking tubes or claiming that solid state sounds better. As far as I can tell he's just trying to figure out what types of clipping are created in a tube amp and if he can make a soild state stage do something similar.  
It would be nice if he used actual measurements and scope shots from an amp instead of theoretical voltages and graphs. In the text he doesn't clearly say if he even has a tube guitar amp to test, but I'm sure he must.
