Having pretty much maxed out on pups, I'm now looking to tube tone for experimentation. At this point, I've formulated a plan, done some homework, and I'm moving to bring it to reality. But before actually buying the stuff, I'd like some feedback from anybody who might have some kind of direct experience along these lines. In a nutshell, the basic plan is to take about a 15 watt tube amp and run it to a Demeter-like silent cab and mic it for needed amplification. The cab and speakers however I plan to be smaller and the speakers to be hopefully hi-fi or car speakers. The amp itself will have it's own preamp but I intend to try at least some independent pre's with it as well (if only mic tube pre's). Who is it that possesses me? The goal is the capacity to generate a variety of quality tube tones at low volume in a compact package that can be amplified if it makes the grade. Versatility of tone will be had via a variety of front end pre's, tube swaps, speaker swaps, versatility within construction of the cab design itself, mic's and mic location.
