I kept noticing a piercing high end when i got the amp. The guy before me loaded it with 4 TAD and 2 Ruby KT88s. It also seemed to get way too hot with those tubes. My parents got me a set of Ruby EL34s for Christmas and i biased the head to 63-65mA per pair. It sounds freakin great now. The youtube video doesn't do the head justice but you can tell that the piercing icepick highs are gone.

I think i'm gonna go with some Ruby HG+ in the preamp section next. I have a mix of EH and Ruby tubes in it now.

Nice! I've got 4 Ruby EL-34s and a pair of SED =C= 6550s in mine. Sounds beastly.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Don't use EHX preamp tubes. And if buying Rubies look up what they actually are, they rebrand lots of things. Just saying "Ruby" means nothing. That's like answering "what sort of car did you buy?" with "A red one."

EH actually sound great with Rectos and i had a few laying around to try out. The Ruby HG+ are consistent high grade tubes so i'm not too worried if they're rebranded. If they're good enough for Peter Diezel to put in stock then they're good enough for me.

The Ruby HG+ is a Chinese valve iirc. They are a pretty good high gain tube. The good Chinese valves are actually quite decent these days and those are one of the good Chinese ones if they are the ones I'm thinking of.

That thing has 6 power tubes?

Mother of god.

HNTD!


Yeah 180 watts. It's a monster but it's incredibly versatile.

I don't doubt it, Diezels are amazing amps. Enjoy man! Have you looked into the Preamp tubes?


I'll probably swap them out within the next month or so. The ones that i have in it sound really good at the moment.
