    Very nice, thanks.
    As the owner/operator of a Mesa Buster (6-6L6GC,3-12AX7A) & a new V4BH (4-6L6GC & I forget the pre-amp tubes!), I do not modify, play with, or even think about messing with these cumbersome, heavy, intricate, archaeic, yet MAGNIFICENT sounding circuits-
    I simply turn them on (wait 30 seconds before turning off standby of course) adjust my eq, and enjoy tone that a mosfet or hybrid amp can only dream about- there is no sounding "like tubes"...
    There are only...
    TUBES!


    ...Dey get hotta, dey sound betta!
     
  3. That's a good resource, I've seen it before. There is also a lot of good information on Ampage. It's linked off www.firebottle.com . There are some very knowledgeable guys on the message boards, including some guys from some of the boutique tube amp manufacturers. Good stuff!
     
  4. I just checked out FireBottle....WOW...:D... If it ain't there then you don't need to know it.
