Surely the Tube Sound happened by accident. Tube amplifiers were used to make guitars louder and they did. Then SS amplifiers were used and they also made guitars louder using smaller components and less energy. But they sounded different. Why should we strive to make them sound tubey?

This is a harmonic profile pics of a triode single-ended.
I'm not aware of any solid state component that can do this across wide range of output levels.
The circuit is a 6sn7 / ne5532 hybrid.
