    Hello everyone, I just got my very first tube amp, a Laney LC50-II, which has 4 12AX7s and 2 EL34Bs. I was browsing through the manual while checking out some jemsite threads, when I found a page in the amp manual about the tube sockets being labelled V1 through V4 for the preamp tubes and V5...

    I'm looking for a 1x12 combo for mostly home use and maybe band practice. My live rig is a F30 with 2x12 cab. I want good cleans and a decent Satch type rock tone that's not sterile. I've tried the new Randall G3 series, sucks, no lead tone worth anything. If I can't find a good Solid State...

    Hi all. I have a Peavey Valveking Head, it's great but it lacks gain in a big way. I want to replace the tubes so that this gain is increased by a massive amount if possible, what would you recommend? Or could it be a problem with the tubes that is giving me this lack of gain? There's no power...

    Hi all, I've been looking at different amps and I've noticed that some amps (Peavey Valveking / one preamp tube on the Hughes and Kettner Trilogy has a 'cover' on it.) The 'covers' I'm talking about are silver in colour and spring loaded type thing- why are they present on some amps and not on...

    Hi all, hope all is well. Quite self explanatory really, which do you prefer and why in the Peavey 6505+ and the Triple XXX? They are both the same price on Peavey's site. Regards Jonny

    Since acquiring my Rivera combo, I've quit my band and thus, no longer need my half-stack. The JSX is in near-mint condition and has about 50 hours on the original EH power & preamp tubes. Used for 2 private party gigs and a dozen or so practices. No funky smokey odors and it has been in storage...

    Ok, so this is just a wild idea, so I don't want anyone bashing me if this idea is stupid. :D But me and my buddy have been talking about the future of tube amps and solid state getting better, etc. And since I'm really into jazz right now, I have come to love solid state cleans, namely the...

    I own a nice tube amp head with a 4 x 12 cabinet and which sounds nice... It is hand made and it didnt cost me that much money. But, the first thing I realised was that it has chineese made tubes, so Im thinking about changing them for some groove tubes... The amp is similar to a mesa boogie...

    I really like this amp, but it's total overkill for what I'm doing, so it's time for it to move along. This thing sounds amazing, from glassy cleans to medium gain bluesy grit to rip your face off high gain tones. This includes a flight case. Tubed with JJ 6L6 power tubes and ENGL preamp tubes...

    Just wanting to know, my uncle's old Fender something-or-other's tubes are close to dieing, so i want to change them for him (and to play on it for hours on end, obviously :) ) next time i go off to iran to visit. He likes the harmonic overtones during wide vibrato's, bends on 15th fret B...

    So I'm looking to get a small (small like...10 watts) solid state (or tube but I know that can get pricey) amp to use with my POD. At home I have it set up with my favorite amp of all time for use with the pod, the Atomic Reactor, but for being up at school I just want something compact with a...

    The amp is in good condition with one or two minor tears in the tolex. I recently had all the pots cleaned, one of the preamp tubes replaced and the input shielded by a tech. This helped cut down on noise considerably. The amp comes with the Midi Footswitch and original box. I believe it is a...

    Hi, Do you prefer transistor amps, or tube equipped ones? I checked out the amp guide, but there was nothing there (I couldn't find anything when I did a search). I know not much about this particular subject, so I thought I'd post this poll. Also, maybe it turns out as something interesting...
