Re: EL84 amps
Thank you for answering my email. I have heard the Peavey Blues Classic w/1 15'' speaker, so I agree with you that the larger speakers sound better in these particular amps. I have often read in mags about changing preamp tubes from 12ax7 to 12yb7 or something to smooth out the overdirve. What is your opinion on this?
