Re: Need suggestions for new tube amp.

The stock preamp tubes are pretty high gain and tend to sound pretty bright to me. I threw some Sovtek 12AX7LPS tubes in V1,V2,and V3 and it smoothed the tone right out.

I tend to run the treble pretty low (about a quarter up) and the mids and bass at about 2 o-clock. To me it sounds great. I run the ultra channel similarly but with even less treble and it makes for a really nice smooth lead sound.

I have rekindled my love affair with this rig.
Updated effects and a newer approach to sound settings have really piqued my love for this rig again. Sorry to disappoint.
