Re: Copper Rectifier Tube -- Anybody tried 'em?
Hi Jay  
Afaik the MB rebuilded Princetons were kinda like a tweed Bassman circuit inside a Princeton, later on the MkI was like a bf Fender with an extra gainstage infront of the pre.  
Regarding MesaMids;  
It's also because of the highend-filtering ( using caps to solve oscillation problems ), the voicing and the big coupling/bypass-caps. The good thing's MB made tube-amps populair again in the 70s......
