Metal -

Our "metal" amp tube kit is designed to produce richer, thicker, and darker tones.  You have the choice between Ruby 6L6's or EL34's, it includes a "high gain" preamp tone kit.  The Ruby 6L6GCMSTR's give you articulate distortion or the Ruby EL34BSTR will give you a "wall of sound" and the attack and response needed in metal.  Our preamp tone kit is all high gain, designed so you can push your amp and is as follows:

V1 - Mullard CV4004(High Gain)

V2 - Ruby 12AX7ACZ(JJ) HG (High Gain)

V3 - Shuguang 12AX7B (High Gain)

V4 - Shuguang 12AX7B (High Gain)

V5 - Mullard 12AX7 reissue (High Gain)



Rock / Hard Rock -

Our "rock" amp tube kit is designed to produce richer, smooth, fuller bodied tones.  You have a choice between 6L6GC's or EL34's. The Tung-Sol EL34B's have a smooth, almost 6L6 like distortion.
We recommend the Tung-Sol 12AX7 in V1 - it will give the clean channel a three dimensional sound.  Placing the Penta 12AX7 in V2 and V3 will give your modern vintage gain channels a little more character.  Our preamp tone kit will give you the flexability needed in rock, and is as followed:

V1 - Mullard CV4004

V2 - JJ ECC83 

V3 - Shuguang12AX7B

V4 - Shuguang12AX7B

V5 - Mullard 12AX7 reissue

Customer Reviews

Whole different amp! Review by Jeremy
Installed the Metal tube preamp set in my single recto. AWESOME. it came with a full set of Mesa Russian (EH) tubes- it was thin & fizzy. Doug's tube set is a must to get heavy sounds out of the amp! Couple notes I found after lots of rolling. First, I could really go either way for the Tung Sol in V1 & JJ in V2 vs. swapping the two. The JJ in V1 produces a killer, dark angry tone but I think the TS in V1 with it's slight edge may cut through a mix better. May play with this some more, glad I have both on hand now. Second, I personally ended up with a Mullard in the PI because I wanted to darken & heavy the tone up just a little more than the LPS was doing for me. I'm very happy with the kit, but if you're looking for just a little more darkness you may want to go this way as well. I have a Diavlo head that preferred the LPS in the PI (it's a dark amp to start with) so it's all good. Thanks! (Posted on 3/10/16)
solo 50 rock Review by matt
Tubes work perfect. All tubes had the testing data on them and the amp sounds great. Thanks. (Posted on 4/25/13)
TAD 6l6's + Mesa Metal Tone Kit Review by Adam
Just put these tubes in. Sounds great, very, very, clear and as said above articulate.
I haven't played with a drummer yet, but I imagine I'll have no problem cutting through even the heaviest hitters.
The lows are really tight and clear. Chords don't mud up when tuned down.

These definitely have a lot more "grit" compared to the stock mesa tubes.
Cleans are spanky.

Overall pretty stoked.
Thanks man! (Posted on 1/5/13)

Hear that monster GROWL!! Awesome selection of preamp/power amp tubes. It is very articulate, highs are controlled, LOUD!
