    I like this head a lot, but I would like to get more string clarity. I have messed with the EQ and it helps, but overall the head is extremely thick and bassy sounding. Not that I am complaining... I am looking for a clearer, maybe smoother bass tone overall. I like the 6550 power tubes, I am looking at the pre-amp/driver tubes. What would be a good choice to make this amp come alive?
  2. I found it hard to beat JJ 12AX7's & EH12AX7's & EH 12AT7's which I think are in this amp. IIRC that is. Tho I can't remember where which went where -what???
    Dunno what JJ KT88's 'd do for the sound either - www.eurotubes.com are worth emailing for their opinion. They helped me make a decision on tubes B4- even when it was NOT a purchase from them
