Also what type of tube you are chaning from.

The difference in sound between a really worn out Sovtek 6L6 to a NOS Mullard EL34 would be pretty big...

I know that...I'm just being an ass.


i kno...I was to.


this is the second thread ive seen his mg get dissed. HA

I THINK he might realize now that it blows, and he's wondering about tubes, and is gong to get a good tube amp. ? ( Atleast i hope he is, for his ears sake, and everone around him.)

Well, you'd change 'em...if they need to be replaced. If you use your amp a lot and crank it, maybe 1- 2 years, you'll end up replacing the power tubes.
Preamp tubes can last a lot longer.

Again, it depends on the type, but it can change your tone significantly.
