8) This is a great theoretical electronics resource, and covers very similar ground to university electronic engineering course modules. It even has a chapter about tubes (in the Semiconductor section of all places)! :D

"Solid State: A component that has been specifically designed to make a guitar amplifier sound bad. Compared to tubes, these devices can have a very long lifespan, which guarantees that your amplifier will retain its thin, lifeless, and buzzy sound for a long time to come." (allaboutcircuits.com/vol_3)
Lolololol! (Thanks for the link ZP.)
