Ok soo iv got hold of a cheap but like new line6 spidervalve hd100 .. the guy that had it before changed the tubes for ones that made the amp not as mean! (no idea what they are) and i dont like it.. iv played a stock spidervalve with my caparison and loved it soo my question is what tubes would be good for stuff like Soilwork, arch enemy etc .. this is my first valve amp soo i dont really have any idea about what tubes are out there .. also my cab has 4 v30's ..

Thanks.

Sorry to say man, the Spider Valve is still a modeling amplifier, the tubes in that thing anre't having much to do with it's tone, unless they are just completely shot altogether...

Well you have a H&K Switchblade, and an Ibenez, and a Dinky, and now your new spider valve?

Is this a joke?

It's still modelling...

Isn't he referring to power tubes?
In which case: generally metal players use 6L6 tubes in the power section.

Well with the Spider Valve, I think you can only use 6L6s in the power section.

Try:

Ruby's 12AX7 for the preamp tubes...

Sovtek's 5881s for the power section. IIRC these are what came stock.

If you want a bassier / darker tone, use JJ's or Tesla's 6L6 GC for the power section.

If its possible, change your speakers. I find that the Vintage 30s have a brittle/weak tone.
