How often do you need to change the tubes in a Dual Rectifier if you play like 1-4 hours.
#2
People usually say 1-2 years, but it also depends on how loud you play and if you let them warm up for enough time before playing. All I can say is that not too often. :P

in your life or a day?
im guessing you mean each day and it really does depend on things like how hard you push them or general longevity of the tubes can vary
some people say once a year other 2-3 years i'd say try and change them annually if you push them hard or if you don't gig then possibly keep playing till one blows then replace it
