Just wondering, when replacing my tubes in my mesa, will any mesa tubes do (say i want to replace them with normal mesa 6l6's)?
Because there seems to be some kind of colour coding thing, anyone know?
From what I've heard switching to different tubes alter the tone of your amp so if you like your tone you should get the same tubes you used before
but i dont know what colour i should get, theres no markings to tell me what tube it is...
if you are ordering from Mesa, just tell them what amp you have. The color coding is so you can replace a single tube and still match them, without having to buy a whole new matched set. However, any tube dealer that knows Mesa's fixed bias can test a set of tubes for you that will work with Mesa's fixed bias, you aren't limited to only Mesa branded tubes.
