So ive had my dual rec for a year and a half now, and its the first time this has popped up. One day i plugged in, started playing and realised my tone was TERRIBLE, it was way to trebley and incredibly fuzzy. I looked at my footswitch and realized that the FX loop was on, which has happened before but never effected my tone, so i turned it off. The tone improved significantly, but i still feel like i lost a significant amount of low end tightness and growl, and despite trying to EQ it, i cant get it to sound good.


Is there something that my fx loop is doing thats causing my tone to be altered, or is it time to change the tubes? im really kinda clueless as to what the problem is.

Thanks in advance

Have you changed the tubes before? cuz that sounds like they need to be changed

Now that i read more about it that does seem to be the case.
I haven't previously changed
If i play mainly using 6l6s should i just replace the 6l6s or the el34s too?

Thanks for replying by the way.

you have both 6l6 and El34's in your amp? is it a solo head or Road King?

If the tubes havent been previously changed, I'd change all of them, power/pre amp and rectifier.

check http://www.dougstubes.com/ and email them about which tubes specifically you should get

np, your welcome
