. Im not very happy- the amp is only 6 months old! Took it back to the shop to see what they could do for me. Not much apparently. They are having a look at it and will tell me if its just the tubes that have blown or if its something else inside the amp that has caused the problem in which case its still covered by warranty .The tube warranty ran out 3 months ago so either way I will need to buy new tubes.
My question is: what are some new tubes I should consider? Im thinking i may as well try some thing different to the stock groovetubes seeing as I need to replace them anyway. Are the electro harmonix ones any good?
Hoping to hear from anyone with direct experience.
Sounds like you need some Mullard Blackburns
