Wanting to Swap the Tubes in my HT5 head for something a little more beefed up, thing is I still don't know about different types of tubes.

It has an ECC83 preamp and a 12BH7 power,

I'd like to put in some that give off a higher output, but alas I don't know what to look for in tubes so suggestions are moar than welcome. Also, what is the difference between the pre amp and power tube?

As for cabs/speakers, going to go for the HT 1x12 cab and put a Celestion
G12T-75 in it


Thanks

I think you have your pre and power amps mixed up, or there's something really fishy going on in your amp.

Someone please correct me if I'm missing something obvious.

nope it's just fishy.

you won't be able to increase your output.

there's really no reason to change the 12bh7.

you could try a jj ecc83 for your preamp.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

You're probably right. Like I said, new to tubes

No, the OP's right.

For the preamp (12ax7/ecc83) you can try long plates. I know nothing about the 12bh7.

I looked up the12bh7 and you can get the NOS 12bh7 pretty cheap.

You are. The HT5 is a hybrid. Two pre amp tubes+clipping diodes, and a SS cum tube poweramp.

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

This I cannot do, I love my HT5 like a son.

To part with it would be like losing a testicle
