Especially high gain amps like a boogie. Any of the new reissue amps will work good with nos tubes and of course vintage amps. I guess weighing the cost against application and the tone your looking for is what matters. Let's not forget the reason for tubes is there distortion characteristics and harmonic content. If you run a clean power section then new tubes should do just fine. If you have a nice class a amp that you can crank for that power tube saturation then a nos tube whould be well worth the investment. My opinion anyway Greg....
