6l6 tubes

  1. XXX II Distortion

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Bought a Peavey XXX II head (second edition XXX) and it just doesn’t sound right. Out of the lead channel I get not a distorted tone but more of a fuzz. I can’t get much distortion out of this head, from what I see it’s running 4 6L6’s. What are some areas to troubleshoot?
  2. mismatched tubes?

    Amps and Cabs
    I was poking around in the back of my amp and I noticed that one of the tubes is different than the rest. Is this a concern? The amp sounds great to me, but concerned that it may affect longevity/performance somehow. The new one is a Slovak 6L6 instead of the 5881's it was supposed to come with...
