A cathodyne or paraphase PI will distort a lot. If the 12ax7 is used as the PI in the Gigmaster it would most likely be a long tailed pair though. A long tailed pair is a lot cleaner, but will clip a...

I totally agree about the power amp, which is exactly why I suggested the 12ax7 is used for the PI. :p:

Everyone is throwing a fit that it's a hybrid, but it sounds damn good. Does anyone know the tube compliment?
$900 sounds ridiculous.

You really can't compare them. The midrange lies in very different places. You can scoop the midrange out completely on a marshall but the frequency range you're cutting will be narrower and in a...

I don't know about John Mayer's amp settings, but keep in mind putting your mids on 10% on a Dumble(or Dumble clone) is equivalent to diming your mids on a blackface fender tone stack.

Are these going to be all tube, or "tube" like the HT-5? Doesn't really matter, as the HT-5 sounds good(I personally didn't like it, but I could see why others could), but I'm just curious.

Do you need a distortion pedal with that amp? Maybe look into a boost to drive the preamp harder.

Good catch. I just figured it was switchable. TS, the Suck Knob WON'T work. I'm sure you could find a foot switchable, cheap volume box on ebay though.

This may be your best option, because an actual boost might cause the preamp to distort, which sounds really really bad with a solid state amp. Does your amp have an effects loop? You'll have to put...

Probably not. It'll change the voicing a little bit, but it won't be a huge difference.

Also, those Yellow Jackets convert to El84's, not El34's. They will decrease your output and headroom.
