Very good demo. I'm also considering purchasing this amp.

Epiphone SG G-400

Laney TT50-112

Ibanez Weeping Demon
Marshall RG-1 Regenerator
Electro-Harmonix/Sovtek (Black) Big Muff Pi

The tube produces preamp disotortion, if anything. It actually doesn't do a lot.

Amp sounds great though, a lot better than the ADVT series (first run).

How? The tube is in the power amp

^It's a preamp tube. If you like inside your AD100VT, you will notice (if you left it stock) most likely an EHX 12AX7 preamp tube. It's the same way in my AD30VT

But surely it could not create preamp distortion if it is in the power amp. I know it's a preamp tube, but it is in the power amp.

^Again, it doesn't really do anything, no matter where it's located. The tube is just a gimmick, and it always has been for "hybrid" amps.

^I did the same thing. After I opened it I just left it open back.

^I've had my ADVT since 2006. I don't care if it does, it's over anyways.

how youre supposed to change the tube without voiding the warranty
if you are not allowed to open it

I watched a review a while ago that stated the single tube (somehow, don't ask me) functions as both a pre-amp and a power amp.

i think the tube does wear out since when you power the amp up you dont have any sound until minute or so after the tube warms up

unless they added the delay to fake that too?

Is there no standby switch?

They wouldn't go to all that effort to fake it, I don't think.


it is suspicious..


The delay is probably just to protect the t00b, because you're supposed to leave the filament warm up and start boiling those electrons before you start playing.
