Re: Ade: what's your ultimate NOS tube setup for R30 and Terror amps?

In my Rocker 15 Terror, I'm using NOS Rogers-branded Philips i65 12AX7's. I really like how they compress with distortion and they sound lush and warm In the power-amp section, I use NOS Soviet 6P14P-EV tubes. These sound true and clear and can be driven hard. They also last a long time, spec'd for...

Ade: what's your ultimate NOS tube setup for R30 and Terror amps?

Dear God, the StonerToanz™ would rule out of those cabs. Looks like they had bong water spilled on 'em too.

Re: Tubes rocker 30

Wasn’t a fan if the KT77’s in my Rocker. Just didn’t seem to feel as harmonically rich as EL34 or 6CA7. 6CA7’s are great if you want to add some bottom end. Running EL34’s at the moment. Lots of punch. Get a hotter set that's about 10ma apart in bias at idle. They have to be hot to sound right, I'm...

Re: Rocker 30 Bias mod and MM vs Demeter transformers.

Got some higher-draw JJ's from Tubedepot.com and they run around 79/82. Slight redplate, but sweet Jesus the tone! My god! Orange glow in the creases of the plates, but FFS it sounds GODLY! Russian 6P3S-E's sound just about as good, slightly less bias (74/76) and will prolly take the live beating mu...

Re: Rocker 30 Bias mod and MM vs Demeter transformers.

That is, they're @ 70/76ma with 320v B+. With the master dimed, I see around 100ma/300v peaks, which is the sauce, but le glory toanz only happen when you start there and go higher. My dad's Guytron GT-100 F/V runs the EL84's at over their 100% dissipation spec and thus require replacement every 3-6...

Rocker 30 Bias mod and MM vs Demeter transformers.

Any folks install a pot to get the bias up higher? I like the amp, just need to overdrive the power tubes a bit more. They sit at 22/24 watts, want them at 28/30 at idle. I know it's not "safe" or whatever, but this is key. Could get a hotter set, may try that first. Anyone? Beuller? Also, what's th...
