Lives for gear
 

I stuck an Accutronics tank in my AC15CC1, and it's better, but the results were not as good as I hoped. Still sounded cold.

And from an engineering point of view (I'm an old EE), op amps are not necessarily superior. Depends on the application.
What they are is versatile and cheap. Both in parts cost and manufacturing (automated assembly).

A tube reverb circuit is much more expensive, the tube alone costing more than entire op amp reverb circuit. There's a reverb driver transformer, so you don't save on iron.
