    Apologies if this seems like a silly question. I own a MESA Rect-o-verb 50 Single Rectifier Combo amp. I have been playing with the settings trying to dial in some tones. I don't know if there's a tube issue or if its just the way tubes work in an amp. But, if I have the amp on the clean...

    Hello friends! I come in search of much needed advice today :) I have an EVH 5150 iii 2x12 combo amp that started getting noisy and eventually I realized it needed new tubes. So at the advice of a friend, I went with a complete set of 7 JJ 12AX7s (I left the 6L6s alone) Well good news is...

    Hi everyone. Hoping to get a bit of advice on my amp head, which started humming a few days ago. I'll try and give as much detail as possible to help diagnose. - It can be heard slightly when on standby then loudly through the cabinet when standby switched off - Volume controls make no...

    Last week my power tubes were crapping out in my HT40. I switched the two TAD EL34-STRs for JJ E34Ls. The tone is fantastic - tighter lows, improved balance in the cleans, and smoother distortion with more sustain. So now I'm thinking about changing out the two ECC83 pre-amp tubes as well...

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Thermion. I bought one from a guy almost new old stock. The clean channel sounds absolutely incredible, the dirty channel....not so hot, even with the gain full bore. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any tubes or mods to me. I want to...

    So for those interested in sinking big money chasing tone on their amps (a frequent discussion on the Mesa boards) I decided to make this video while my fiance was away at work! 8) It's a quick comparison of the Sylvania 6L6GC (STR-387), Ruby 6L6GC MSTR, and Mesa 5881. It might surprise some...

    I've been working on getting a new subsection for "Replacement Tubes" in the comparison shopping section up. Finally got the first couple done (thanks, Alan!) so you guys can help add some new products and reviews! It's under the "Guitar Amplifiers" section. I figured there are plenty of new...

    A while ago I have been thinking about my current setup: a Laney LC50-II, a Digitech RP500 for effects, and two Ibby guitars, and what I could do to improve my sound. I was thinking of doing a speaker swap or a retweaking of the RP, but when I got to thinking about changing out tubes, a thought...

    Has anyone had a chance to try the re-issued Mullards? I have a couple of 12ax7's coming, and at about $15 each compared to $50-$110 for NOS, who knows, might get lucky. I also use EL34's too so any info or opinions would be welcome.

    Hey guys check this one out, a chess set made out of tubes (although they don't seem to be real ones) It looks cool! The two sides glow blue and red in reference to Star Wars, see it here: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/07/vacuum-tube-chess-flickers-and-glows/
