does anyone know the original brand and tubes that were used in the jcm 800 2203 (NOT reissue)? my dad has one as wants to get new tubes for it, he replaced the originals with groove tubes and said it hasnt been the same since. this was back in the 80's as well so he doesnt have them around still. any help is appreciated
Lemme google that for you:
Pretty sure they were Teslas. The closest thing to that these days (unless you hunt down NOS) are JJ. They are made on the same machines but the materials are a bit different and the old Tesla dudes all retired so they are made by different men. Still, they will get you pretty close to original.
Oh my bad, I read your post incorrectly. Sleepy sleepy. I agree with Cath, JJs are the way to go now.
