I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
There is also a lot of other good info there too worth reading.
Here's the paragraph in question from Hartley Peavey: 
1:42pmA widely held misconception is that tubes “clip” dif- ferently than transistors. Many think that tubes clip with a “slightly rounded waveform” while a transis- tor clips totally square... The FACT is that TUBES CLIP JUST AS “SQUARELY” AS TRANSISTORS, albeit usually tubes tend to clip asymmetrically
(one side clips before the other) while transistors generally clip more “symmetrically.”

Surprise quiz!!!!
