ok, so my Triple Rectifier and I have had a glourious relationship since 99. Recently, it started make a noise that sounds like crackling so Im pretty sure that its time for new tubes [i know, its terrible I waited til now to change the tubes.].
my question is, the store doesnt sell the power amp tubes and I have shows all this weekend that I have to have the head for. If i just replace the 12-ax7 tubes and the 6l6s and not the 54uG, will it still sound fine and shortly after [like, 3 weeks i think they said it would take for those 54UGs to come in] replace them? will this do any damage to my amp?
im new to this tube thingy.
