ok, on my new tube amp, it has a 4, 8, or 16 OHMS selector.

im curious as to what this does and how changing it could affect my amp and the tone.

Nothing. It's when you connect an external speaker, you'll have to match the impedance of the amp with the cab's.

ohms is a measurement of resistence. It wont really effect your tone, it's not something you want to play with b/c you could seriously mess your gear. I suggest you consult the manual to get it to the right setting. The reason this feature is there is b/c the resistence may need to be changed when adding a cab. If it's a head youll have to make sure you set the resistance right for whatever cab (or cabs) your using. If its a combo it should tell you the factory setting in the manual, and guide you on how to adjust it if you want an extention cab.
