Tube sound (or valve sound) is the characteristic sound associated with a vacuum tube-based audio amplifier.[1] The audible significance of tube amplification on audio signals is a subject of continuing debate among audio enthusiasts.[2]

Some electric guitar, electric bass, and keyboard players in a range of popular, rock, funk, blues, reggae and jazz genres also prefer the sound of tube instrument amplifiers or preamplifiers.
