    I have an Eden WT300 thats 10 years old. I've had it for 7 and don't hear a noticeable difference in tone or volume. When do you usually change preamp tubes?
     
  2. Basically when you start to notice a difference in tone or volume. Preamp tubes generally last for a loooonnnngggg time.

    Usually, when you hear a noticeable difference in tone or volume. Or crackling, or some other audible difference.

    I'd keep rollin' with 'em....
     
  4. ...when they die, which shouldn't be for at least another 30 or 40 years
