12AX7 in the preamp and EL84 power stage.

I read somewhere the names on the Peavey tubes - it was a Russian sounding name staring with a 'K' I think?

When cranked there's a slight vibration in there somewhere, so you may end up getting a good look
at my private bits soon. Worn rubber on a tube maybe?



Bloody thing should have included a spring reverb.

Maybe one of these pedals will do a good spring reverb imitation?

I know Id like one of those Phaser or Flanger things.

$296 US plus shipping??  laughing6  confused2

I don't think so  Wood Chopping

My Boss ME-25 already has all the effects I need,
I was just wishing the amp had it's own inbuilt reverb
for portability...

So I just spent $49 and got a little nuX-PG2 (they make them for bass as well)
with plenty of effects such as reverb - has a tuner, metronome etc, runs
off two AA and will clip on the side of the amp.

Got da new NUX today - reverb at last through the tubes.

Well built little thing for the price.

Still gots a vibration from the amp somewheres when
I turns it up to the 'B' (Bon Jovi) setting.

Hopefully just a loose fitting.
I'll throw it in the car for  Wood Chopping ta have listen ta  Doctor
