Re: Rocker 30 Cathode Bias EL34L Issue?

yeah man, I’ve been considering it and have been researching a bit. I’m in the process of learning and trying to build my first amp (been doing pedals for a while) and was considering adding the loop or having someone do it for me.

Re: Rocker 30 Cathode Bias EL34L Issue?

Noice!! So bad ass to find other people using Rocker 30s. I have a pile of poop ton of amps and gear (no vacations, shitty car, bag lunches, etc) but it's my favorite and I've never crossed any other players on stage, in studio, or life that use it haha.

Re: Rocker 30 Cathode Bias EL34L Issue?

Holy crap you are exactly right. They are E34L. I didn't even notice that. So what upsets me a little bit, is that I asked the guy for EL34 tubes that were rated for slightly higher gain and not for an E34L. I am an OCD self-educator but this one slipped by me. I take the blame though haha. Anyhow, ...

Rocker 30 Cathode Bias EL34L Issue?

I've searched this topic for days but cannot seem to find a qualified answer. Does anyone know if switching from "regular" EL34 valves to EL34L valves could cause an issue or harm my Rocker 30?
