No it really is EL34 amp, which I cannot understand why. Its basically stripped down version of HT50 and yet it still uses same big bottles for measly 20 watts. :confused:

If you have something connected to the guitar with active pickups it drains the battery. Always disconnect the cable from the guitar with active pickups when not in use!

No. 2212 is the same amp as JCA22h, which has the same preamp as 50h and 100h. Nothing to do with JCA5212 even though the name might suggest it. Jet City certainly did not make things easy. :D

inb4 Cathbard appears and recommends Randall RM and some modules, Fenderish and Soldano in this case.

Which now that I think about it might not be a bad idea. :D

Post gain is just a Peaveys dumb own name for channel volume. Use it to match the volume between channels and then use the master for adjusting the overall volume.

Why on earth do you want to do that? You kill the point of master volumes. Turn the channel volume down, WAY down and 333 becomes excellent bedroom amp.

6505 has bit ballsier distortion, + is tighter (less need for overdrive) and has better cleans. But they are amps from the same family and the differences are quite small.
