I went to GC a few months back, played the Bassbreaker 15 combo, and have had tube amp lust ever since. Unfortunately, it's out of my price range, so I've been cruising Craigslist and used amp listings looking for something more tubey-feeling than my Mustang III. I finally lucked into a nice Super Champ X2. What a great amp this is! I just want to play and listen to this thing - it's hard to turn it off. I liked my 'Stang III a lot, but it was too much amp for my needs. The variety of sounds and flexibility were great, but it didn't sound good at lower volumes. Most of my playing is late at night for recording, with the occasional jam...which happened too infrequently for me to take advantage of the amp's 100 watts of S/S power. The SCX2 has (IMO) has the sound and feel of a tube-driven amp (yes, I know it's a tube-S/S hybrid) and gives me what I need at lower volumes. I'm getting into pedals these days, so the onboard FX aren't going to get used much, apart from the reverb.
