Hey guys,

Im getting a new amp soon and I want to know how much it would be to change the tubes when they need to be changed.

This is a list of how many tubes I need
Tube change list:
Power: 4- 6L6/5881
Preamp: 4-12AX7
Phase-Inverter: 1- 12AX7
Reverb: 1- 12AX7
Effects-Loop: 1- 12AX7
Rectifier 1- 5AR4

Now I looked on google and I didn't know which was which, since I'v never owned a tube amps. So this is what I cam up with.

4 6L6= 77.36
7 12AX7= 104.93
1 5AR4= 20.95
Total=203.24

Is this right? If not can you fix it?

Thanks

You should not need to change anything but power tubes (the 6L6's). Preamp and rectifier tubes should last a very very long time.

It could be as soon as six months, and as long as 5 years. It's totally a function of how often you play, for how long, how loud, etc. Also a function of the quality of your tubes and how well you maintain them.
