    Valves in there might be fine, plenty of solder joints and connections that could be trouble, caps are probably coming up due replacing too. If you need to revalve, keep any stlll good old ones from it, always useful,. The Gold Lion KT88 are good by all accounts, I still use Shuguang GEKT88 because cheap, and also good.

    Good point. I'm sure tech will tell me if they are good or not.
    Was thinking maybe the gold lions would make it sound a little richer in tone. Any thoughts?
  4. If you haven't yet, check w/tech regarding new tubes. Some only want to retube with their brand of choice, bought through them at their price. Others are cool with whatever you supply.
