    I'm wondering if there is any way to mod a D180 to use 6550 instead of the 6l6's it currently uses. I thought I read somewhere that the older 400's came with 6550's.

    I love my D180 but sometime I wish I had just a little more headroom.

    Steve, you ought to call Mesa and ask them....

    If it would work, you'll have to adjust the bias network...I don't believe that Mesa's come with a potentiomenter to do this...
