i recently read that by putting 6v6s instead of 6l6s in the poweramp of a fender HRD, you drastically improve the tone of the fenders drive channel. is this true?
i just use my tubescreamer to tighten it up a bit and it works pretty well, but im always looking for a better tone. thanks.
You'll definitely change the tone; but it's a matter of opinion whether it will sound better or not. It'll affect the entire amp, not just the drive channel.
i understand that. i was hoping someone had done it before so i would know if its even worth a try. is there any other things that i could do that might sound better for the drive channel. maybe a different preamp tube in the V2 spot. what type of tube?
