That all depends what you mean by a difficult load. If it's a higher than typical impedance load many tube amps may have advantage. If it's a lower than typical impedance load many solid state amps will have an advantage. Many lower powered tube amps will clip more gracefully than a solid state amps. Many solid state amps offer more power per dollar. IMHO it's a moot point. First find the appropriate tools for the job, the decide which tool you prefer to work with.
