Big Leap Forward Review by Thomas
The search for tone has so many components that it's hard to isolate just one. At Doug's recommendation, a pair of Tung Sol 6L6GC-STRs went into the vibrato channel of my hand wired Super Reverb AB763 head along with Mullard CV4004 12AX7, EH 12AX7, and JAN Phillips 12AT7WC black plate. They pump 4 x 12 Jensen Electric Lightnings. The pre-amp tubes alone made a nice musical difference. Good depth, articulation and harmonics. With the Tung Sol 6L6s added, the frequencies became much more balanced with very nice touch response. It is louder with a longer slope from clean to distortion, making it easier to dial in a usable sounds. While It doesn't sound like any other Super Reverb, it has its own great sound. It went from a piece of furniture to a rig I love to play with a wide range of tone that makes it fun. Who knows? I might even load the normal channel pre-amp. Thanks Doug. (Posted on 4/27/17)
Hot Rod Deluxe Review by William
I spent several hundred dollars on power tubes trying to find the right tone for my HRD. This tube is it, period. Big fat tone and clean. Very pleased. (Posted on 9/5/14)
Peavey 5150 Review by Mark
I won't buy tubes from anyone else. Doug's knowledge of his stock and his willingness to help you find the right tubes is second to none. Fastest order filling and shipping. Always helpful with any questions I may have on a particular tube and share his knowledge. Whether he knows it or not, he has sort of become my amp tech! If you're not getting your tubes from him, you should be. Thanks Doug! (Posted on 3/23/14)

you ROCK & now I ROCK Review by Edev
Doug: you ROCK & now I ROCK with the new tubes you sold me! Your advice for
the output stage (TUNG-SOL 6L6GC-STR) & the preamp/FX stages (EH 12AX7, JAN
12AT7WC, TUNG-SOL 12AX7) was spot on & just what I needed for my 1972 Fender
Twin Reverb rebuild project. I now have a clear-crisp normal channel with
plenty of headroom & a vibrato channel with just the right amount of
distortion for that ultra-cool blues feel. I'm amazed at how versatile this
amp is with these new tubes installed. Best wishes & thanks for the fast
shipping, too!
