New tubes in SVT CL sound great!!

  1. Just popped some new svetlana 6550 power tubes and jj/tesla 12ax7 and 12au7's in the preamp/driver sections of my ampeg svt classic head. I didnt expect it to make a big difference but it did, not a huge one but definately noticeable. More extended/deeper lows, friendlier/more controllable mids and more gentle highs. Running a Fender jazz, dbx160a comp and ampeg HP810 cab, I dont think i've ever heard a better bass tone in my life! Scuze the gushing, just thought i'd share the love.............
  2. Lemme know if you want to unload your old power tubes. I have test equipment and could compare them to new ones and post the results here so that this forum would have a definitive marker on modern production power tube life.
  3. How does that compressor act with the SVT-CL?

    I have been searching for a compressor, but not too shure about how they react against a valve head, I have a SVT-VR and want some groovy effects, such as a good compressor.
