    My opinion is that 30 mA thru a 6V6 tube is going to sound like 30 mA thru a 6V6 tube.



    The difference between tubes seems like a better explanation.



    I would not think that the 14 W tube would need more current to sound like the 12 W tube.




    It means that the 14 W tube may be able to take 35 mA and the 12 W tube may not take it as well.



    Just my opinion







    EDIT:


    I take it back.

    Rebasing from 70% of 12 W MPD to 70% of 14 W MPD would be an improvement in tone.

    I don't know if this helps, but that guy who hasn't posted in a while and hates all amps besides a solid-state one (can't remember his name offhand) said that amp sounds better with EL-34 tubes.

    After taking what I can only assume was an accidentally weekend trip to the post office in lake havasu, my tubes finally got delivered to the house today. Unfortunately I’m still at work!

    Found this video:

    point being not that you want to play metal with EMGs, but several people in the comment section recommended EL34 tubes in the output. Click on the "YouTube" at the lower right to play the video in a new tab and read the comments.
