Most people still forget to mention it.

I should probably include the POD in my previous statement as well.

i have more than 2 tube amps.
i just stopped being a lemming, and i got some great shit because of it. kind of when you first learn that MTV isnt the only place to get your music from

meh, im pretty sure the POD and vettas are 'technically' hybrid as the preamps are digital rather than opamp/transistor based and the power amps are solid states. thats just being anal though.

So what kind of stuff are you talking about exactly? I don't really know much about good solid state amps.

Yeah, but those aren't as bad to replace.

really? my preamp tubes are worth a pair of powertubes for each preamp tube... 15 per preamp tube. 16 per matched pair of powertubes...

i dont really want to get into specifics right here. not pulling a fast one, but its just the way i am. the "josh homme" type who doesnt open his mouth. a few of them are pretty rare numbers my friend, took a bit of a search. but well worth it mind you. but a lot of good SS stuff is right in front of you already, you just have to open your eyes.

word to the wise. all that horse manuere you heard about solid state amps not being able to do a warm crunch sound, is just that, horse shit

ill say this, when you see that weird looking dusty ass amp in the corner of GC and you make an effort to play it, but look in the back and start to walk away because there's no tubes back there. just play it.

oh, and dont play them through shitty speakers/cabs. you wouldnt do that with your orange would you?. i think thats why a lot of solid state amps get an overly hard time. people seem to think playing their plexi through the 4x12 green back loaded 1960 vs the crate with the cardboard cab with speakers made by chinese babies is a fair comparison. "omg man, the crate fukking sux." treat em' like any other amp.

^Wait, why do you need to replace ALL the Mesa's tubes?



Probably not the recitifier tubes, but the other ones definately need it. Soooo old they sound like **** right now. They are probably as old as I am. Eh well thats what I get for buying used.

Yeah man. My friend's dad has a Fender Twin Reverb with the stock preamp tubes. Still works perfectly.



Well, mine don't, and like I said, they aren't the ones I want any way.

thats cuz its a twin reverb. you don't drive it so hard like the preamp tubes on my BJ. always volume at 12.
