I have a Fender Blues DeVille that had the original Sovteks in it. When I changed to Grooves, I realized why people buy tube amps.

Yeah, a lot of people don't realize that the tubes really matter in how an amp sounds. I actually don't know if I like the Groove pre-amp tubes, and I don't think I like the Sovtek power tubes, some Winged C and EH will do the trick.

 

Congratulations, knock yourself out. Are you planning to make its debut on the grand prix?

 

I'm going to judge since I'm running it, I think it's a bit in bad form for me to compete. I may just do a demo vid/soundclip of it anyway just to hear what it's like recorded. Won't be competing though (because obviously I'D WIN :P )

Was drunk.... so I bought JJ EL34's and Winged C EL34's...... guess I'll find out which I like better at least, maybe sell the others.

 

Anyway, thinking I'm gonna do an EH 12AX7 in V1, then a JJ ECC83 in V2, and finish it out with another EH in V3 - all balanced triodes and high gain. Should be killer, will hopefully have the whole rig up an running (with my new Boss OD2 from the mid-80s!) late next week.

Nice! I was actually drunk when I made the decision to buy my amp and guitar. Alcohol can be awesome

Why? Because you can change your tubes if you don't like the stock one? I'm really curious now, since I never owned one...

Sad to hear that, was looking forward to listen to your demo. Oh, well...

I meant the stock tubes sucked and sounded assy. When I put grooves in there, it sounded great.
