Re: Remember the Alamo
Am too lazy to pull the tube manual but are you sure that the amp is wired for 12A_7s? Many of these amps used tubes like 6AU6 (yeah, 7 pin socket, I know) and other tubes that were currently available for cheap (a large manufacturer would change a product line and tens of thousands of tubes would hit the market really cheap and small manufacturers would retool their line to use the available tubes - not hard to do with hand assembly). You might want to pull out a tube manual and check the socket wiring for some other possible candidates - remember the 12AX7 fixation is a recent phenonemae.
