Not soundwise, but if it's made by Peavey it should be durable as a tank.

You are right about that! I've had many Peavey amps in the past and they are rock solid. I was just wondering if the TransTube solid-state amp really sounds like a tube amp (as Peavey claims).

Not in my experience, but I've not tried the latest versions.

I use one, I like it, it is built like a tank, I can get some great tones, but I don't think of it as a Valve amp! The distortion can be nice, it can get quite a nice breaking up tone, but doesn't seem to respond to dynamics as well as tubes
