try this to sweeten yer power tube tone
for those of you who have 100 watt amps(or 50/60), try this to get less noise, and lower volume. use a JAN Phillips 5814A(12au7)in the driver tube socket!!! yes it does work(at least for my VTM-60). i lost almost no distortion(actually helped to define the sound more), noise floor went way down, and volume level was cut about in half. i can now turn it up to 6 1/2 and get power tube distortion. woohoo. maybe this will help somebody.
