I put a set in a 50 watt JCM 800 and they were nicer than any of the current production EL 34 that i've used. Slightly higher headroom, more bottom, better definition.

What kind of guitar are you using and what type of music do you play. I ask because it makes a huge difference in the sound.

im gonna be using a PRS copy and my gibson LP studio.

i stick to metal and punk for what i play, sometimes i turn the gain way down and the volume way up and bust out 3 chord wonders. but predominantly metal, with some punk in there too.

Get a job, y' bum :wink: !!!

Naw, I never settled down to full time work until I was 29.

Look at it this way. A job provides you with income for what you really want to do. sdsre
