Amp : Marshall TSL60
Power amp tubes: Svetlana EL34's
Pre amp tubes: ???

Okay I need new tubes, cause' when I turn up my volume during practice and shows my volume drops a little and I have to keep turning it up.
and I get this annoying ass loud 'hum when I which into the "OD2" (lead) channel.
When I tap the top of it, it makes a pingy noise.

So my question is, what kind of tubes would be good for anything from Metal to Indie.
I was thinking about JJ tubes, but Idk where I can find any; maybe I didn't look hard enough.

Suggest me some :]

How much do you think it would be to get a reverb tank fixed; my 'verb don't work.

I guess they're stock cause' I bought it used.

JJ/Tesla I guess are they same or something?
Tungsol, I've heard good things about these guys.

hmm
I'm not paying for the work to be done, my mom is.
but I'm wondering how much do you think it would cost
for the tubes, and a tech to bias and install them for me?

i am really unsure if you need them biased.

and is it EL34? or EL84? lemme look up the schematic.


the tungsol 12AX7s are my favorite. its just good. JJ/Tesla is one company with two names that produce spectacular EL84s and El34s.

It runs on a duet EL34's.
well I was told even if they are the same type of tube, its good to get the amp biased still.

Try JJ KT77s...pretty much a straight drop in for the EL34 (take it to a tech though), sounds better (less pins and needles sound)

Doug's Tubes is where I get mine from. Tube Store is another place with a good inventory. For strictly JJ, you can go with Eurotubes.

What about JJ E34L's??
I need more gain than these Svetlanas.

Nevermind I think the JJ/Tesla EL34's are the way to go.
