Re: trainwreck clone goes to a gig
    Have you tried your amp with Sovtek/EH 6V6's? Just wondering because you mentioned using DR iron...  
    BW had experimented with a pot instead of the fixed 150k grid load resistor for the 3rd stage... a 250k (audio?) pot should work great there! (Lots of posts mentioned using grid load resistors as low as 33k there; with your pot you can dial in whatever value you want!)  
    So what settings have you been using for that added pot (BW calls his a "focus" control).  
--Thanks for your posts and fill us in with the rest of the details!
