    Valve amps and tube amps are the same, its just there is an american way (tube) and a british way (valve) to call them, search the internet to see how they work etc..

    PS: do u have valve amps in india? cool

    check that one out, this one is a hybrid, it only has tubes in the preamp section(1 tube)
    normall tube amps have tubes in the preamp and power amp section and have more than 1 tube in each,normally from 3 to 5 in the preamp and 2 to 4 in the power amp

    never tried it out but its worth checking out if u have them over there and dont think its very expensive
