Re: Cool AC30's and heresy
I've got a 65ohm resistor off the cathodes on my AC30 and I'm also going to try 80ohms like the early AC30/4s used and see if I can notice any difference in tone (using JJ EL84s)  
I've also got some holes drilled in the wood where the EL84 valve bases are to let some air in the chassis as there's no air flow otherwise.  
I know 'Dave H' runs a fan in his AC30 type amp, so I might try that in mine if I get any problems.
