Does anybody know what tube sockets in a 6505+/5150II head are what v slots?

I just got my tubes in the mail today, 3 of them are interchangeably made for v1,v2,v3. and another one is made for v6. the other 2 are interchangeably made for v4 and v5...

if anybody could draw/find a diagram showing what each slot is it would be nice

the one next to, or closest to the powertubes is the phase inverter. that should get the balanced tube.

the rest should all be interchangeable

Ok, the one closest to the power tubes is probably v6, then going away from them is v5, v4 and so on, probably.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Starting farthest from the power tubes...

V1 is the first preamp socket, and so on, V6 is the Phase inverter.

The paper that came with the tubes says "-The Balanced ECC83S is located in the V6 farthest from the input jack."

Are they talking about the speaker input jack? or are they are saying, looking at it from the front, using the guitar input... they are on other sides:


The 4 power tubes are on top, and the preamp tubes are covered by a plate of metal in the bottom right of the picture. It's got the Eddie sig on it..

The input jack for the guitar, the speaker jack is technically an output.

I don't know really, but if the input jack is all the way to the left if you're looking at it from the front then that sounds right.
