Great set of tubes!!!!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Pete Atkinson, Aug 11, 2000.


  1. Hey Guys, what's up. By a recomendation from psycho,
    I bought some new power tubes for my Mesa 400+. They are the Svetlana 6L6 GC's, and MAN are they great!! I used to have a set of Mesa "Chinese" ( which came in the amp when I bought it used ) crap tubes, and I am now begining to apreciate the true tonality of my amp. I also bought some new preamp tubes to replace the origanal Mesa's. They are the Tesla 12AX7's, and they are also an excellent tube. So if there's anyone out there in the market for power, or preamp tubes, may I recomend the Svetlana 6L6 GC's (power),
    and the Tesla 12AX7's (preamp).

    THANKS

    Hello,
    I am thinking of retubing my SVT-300.
    It's basicly the power section of an SVT.
    I was wondering what kind of tubes should I use to retube it?
    Should I use 6550's?
    What about driver tubes? I don't what number they go by.


    Thanks,
    Greg
