If I'm not mistaken, the valvestate has tubes in the pre-amp and 6L6s are power amp tubes so yeah....

No, not really. Well it's possible in theory I think, but basically, no.

Why ask a question if you don't want an answer?

It cannot be done without rebuilding the entire amp; so you'll have to buy a new one.

have a look here... covers a few issues that may be of use..

okay, it is not exactly the same as you are asking, but shows they can be swapped around... why not e-mail the experts, ..?


How will changing from 6L6's to EL34's affect my tone?

This is a very frequent question and although there is no perfect answer that fits all amps I can give you a pretty good idea what to expect. I've swapped EL34's and 6L6's around in Marshall's, Fender's, Mesa's and Peavey's to name a few and the results are basically the same. EL34's in general don't have a low end that is as deep as a 6L6 so EL34's tend to sound hotter in the mids. EL34's breakup a little earlier then 6L6's and the harmonic content of the mids and highs are more prominent. These differences become more noticeable as volumes increase. You have probably heard the term "Marshall crunch" used before. This term is used to describe the sound of EL34 type tubes when they are being driven into distortion. So if you’re looking for a great Classic rock tone with lots of complex mids you might want to try some EL34's. The JJ E34L's will crunch up real nice but they do have a deeper tighter low end than a standard EL34. If you like a big low end thump then I would stick with a good 6L6 unless you have room for the JJ KT88's which have a BIG low end but sound more like EL34's in the mids and highs.

Why did you even waste your time?
His amp doesnt even HAVE powertubes. it has A(1) preamp tube.

"okay, it is not exactly the same as you are asking, but shows they can be swapped around... why not e-mail the experts, ..? "

In threads like this, I generally say...

If you have to ask us, then yes, it is too complicated for you.
