FYI....if you have the Head you need to "flip" the rows of 12ax/at7 tubes left to right.

Based on the above can I assume this is the layout for the RV100H Mk I?

Bottom row left-to-right

12Ax7 Clean ----- 12Ax7 Dirty ----- 12Ax7 Dirty ----- 12AT7 Rev ret

Middle row left to right

12AT7 FX loop ----- 12AT7 Rev Send ----- 12AX7 balanced Phase inverter

Top row

4x EL34

? :)

The best I can understand is that

V1, V2 = dirty channel
V3 = clean channel
V4 = FX loop
V5 = Phase inverter

this reasonable?..

this post confuses me. namely the suggestion of "flipping" the preamp tube rows. why would i want to do that when the diagram matches the physical layout of my RV Mkii head EXACTLY? i could be wrong but his statement seems questionable. can someone verify either way?

I think the original poster is confused. The control labels are flipped as the combo's chassis sits upside down in comparison to the head . Not the tube positions.

AD50 tube layout question

Post by MojoBlaster » Tue Apr 04, 2017 7:35 pm

Looking at the back of the amp is it V1, V2, etc. from left to right?

After a little bit of due diligence, I have discovered that in the AD50 CS the tube nearest the power tubes is in fact the phase inverter.

Is there anything special about the tube that goes in the phase inverter or is the tube socket just different.
