Technical
What's the difference between Valve and Solid State Amps?

Valve or Tube amps use vacuum tubes to derive amplification where solid state uses electronic transistors. Valve amps generally cost more money as they are a more complex build and require more maintenance than their solid state brethren. Tubes usually give you a smoother response than solid state does but, don't count out the solid state yet. Solid state amps have been around since the 60's and have improved greatly over the years. Solid state amps are generally cheaper and much lower maintenance and therefore are more reliable when performing. Ultimately it comes down to personal preferences. Both types of amps are used regularly by professional musicians alike. 

What is the difference between Overdrive and Distortion?

Overdrive is literally what you get when a tube is pushed beyond its voltage limits causing a clip in the top of the waveforms resulting in a slight warm, fat and sometimes, sizzly tone. Overdrive pedals recreate that tone. The harder you strum, the angrier it sounds, so to speak. Distortion basically adds more clipping stages than overdrive and therefore has a more distorted tone. The more clipping stages added the more distorted the tone is. There is less definition with distortion as there are more overtones created because of the hard clipping.
