News: Live4Guitar talk valve/tube amps

The sound of the tube amp was always synonymous with a rock guitar tone. It is said that the sound of the tube amp is "warmer" compared to solid state amps like transistor or mosfet. The saturation of the tube increases gradually with the increase of the volume, this is something that doesn't happen with solid state amps, which by the way weren't even designed to produce distortion. In solid state amps the distortion is simulated with electronic circuits.

This tone, so dear to guitar players, is produced by the tubes, an electrical component invented at the beginning of last century. Between the '40s and '70s, the tube was included in nearly all electronic devices and is now totally obsolete except for in musical instruments and high end audio equipment.

We will not go into technical details of construction of the tube, but will rather try to give a basic overview that can be useful for guitarists and musicians in general.

If your amp is an all tube amp, and not a hybrid (like Valvestate), you can see that it has two sets of tubes. The first are is made up of small tubes, also known as the "Preamp", while the big ones are the "Power" tubes. Full story:

Natural High
The highly anticipated all-acoustic album from Gambale. This album features reworked standards with Gambale’s own melodies and other new compositions. The album is a burning acoustic album and features Otmaro Ruiz on piano and Alain Caron on acoustic guitar bass and Mike Shapiro percussion on some tracks. There are no drums on the album but you don't even notice leaving the sound spectrum clear for the acoustic instruments to shine and blend. This is an absolute gem of an album.

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet musicfilmweb favorite film so far this year

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet is hands down my favorite film so far this year. Jesse Vile’s music documentary chronicles the life of the metal guitar prodigy/virtuoso who was on his way to the top of the rock world when – at age 20 and about to go on tour with David Lee Roth – he was diagnosed with the degenerative illness amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) and given a few years to live. More than two decades later, Becker is not only not dead yet but is still creating music despite losing his ability to talk or move, thanks to what might be the most supportive family ever put on film. full story
