Though, one thing is that if you wanna take it out and transport, because of the open back/unprotected tubes, I have to put it in one of the front or back passenger seat foot areas and can't just stick it in the trunk.

I was thinking of making some kind of adding valve protection like the cage on the new classics.

Does yours seriously have the stock valves are near 20 years?

I was about to do the same too. But yea the tubes in it were all stock, save for one preamp tube which I assumed was put in to replace an old broken preamp tube. Lately I'd been getting some headroom issues so I just ordered a whole new set of JJ tubes off Eurotubes. I already love my amp, so hopefully these new tubes will make me love it even more

You make a great ad for this amp.
