Ok I got my first tube driven amp yesterday and I would like any tips on how to get the best tone out of it and what are the maintenance procedures on such an amp. It has stock 6L6 GT's in it, would an eventual tube change cause a different tone? To be honest the Cleans are extraordinary but the distortion is ok and could be better. Would just buying a TS a putting it in front of my clean be a better idea?

hate to say but the distortion in the hot rods arent great, you only buy fender for the clean tone, nothing else..

To get the best out of your amp you have to crank it up and push the tubes harder for that nicer sound!

And yes a TS (maxon) would be ideal for it!!!
