    I just bought a Monoprice 30 Watt head - Full tubes, quality cabinet and the tubes mount to the chassis - beafy toggles etc. The clean channel sound great; ran the volume full at both Hi and Low inputs and it was sounding good with just a little crunch. The Overdrive channel however sounds bad. Its thin adn too brittle. That's not a problem since I only use single channel or clean channel only. Well worth 300$.

    Cheap Chinese tubes. Replace the preamp tube(s). Both channels will sound better.

    V1 for sure and also which ever is the phase inverter.

    I prefer old USA RCA or Sylvania can be found on eBay for about the sames price as new ones..$15-20

    Welcome aboard!!
    I’ve been looking at a lot of the Monoprice stuff as well! Seems the above suggestion could warm things up nicely!
