I bought a Marshall DSL 201 of Ebay and my dad went and picked it up and the tubes were removed so they wouldn't break on the car trip home. How do you put the tubes back in and how do you know which ones are the preamp and the power amp tubes and where to put the preamp/power tubes in the amp? This is my first tube amp and has blown all my savings so i dont want to do it the wrong way. Am i best of taking it to my guitar teacher, who im sure will know what to do?
i am not familiar with the marshall tube set up, so i say check the manual, and if it doesnt say which go where in there, just wait to take it to your guitar teacher
Also, i have read on the net that it has 6 tubes (2 el84 and 4 ec83) but i have only recieved 5 tubes pressumably only 3 ec83. Does this matter if i dont have all the tubes
