I have done a forum search and cant find what i need to know, so im asking
My problems is i own a mesa nomad, well thats not a problem, its quite nice actually, but the problem is i want to change tubes from 6L6s that i currently have to EL34s.
I can get these tubes from mesa boogie, use the boogie own brand tubes so to speak, but they are so friggin expensive compared to other tube brands.
I was wondering seenig as a boogie is fixed bias, can you use other brand tubes? For example could i get some EL34 tubes from www.watfordvalves.com
as long as they were matched just chuck em in the amp and go. Or would i need to get the mesa ones because in effect
they are biased to the amp.
If i did get the mesa ones, could i then send one off to somewhere like watford valves and ask them to send me 4 more that are the same bias (in effect
) back to me so i can use those.
