I can't seem to find a decent guide on replacing the valves in my amp, was wondering if anyone knew of a good resource?

Wondering what the process would be for replacing the tubes in my amp with the same ones, just new, changing to different brands etc and the effect that different tubes have on sound.

Thanks

If its the preamp valves just pull them out and push the new ones back in. If its your power tubes then you need to bias them correctly and if its your first time I would take it to a tech.

Hmm...my problem with taking things to tech's is that I'll never learn to do it myself that way :P And I'll be paying them until I do, so I'm looking for a guide. Armed with the right knowledge I'll have no issues doing it myself.

Could you give me a link? Googling just gives me some boy band and a load of ebay listings :S

If this is your Tiny Terror then you don't need to rebias the amp. Just stick the new ones in and go, it's cathode biased.

That depends on the amp. The 6505/5150 is biased so low you could pretty much put whatever matched power tubes you want in there and be fine.
