Ahh...the Bluesbreaker reissue. Yep, I remember the earlier versions of this amp using 6L6s, Greenback ceramics, and a smaller cabinet. I don't know how they were calling it a reissue when they weren't using KT66s, Blue/Silver/Greenback alnicos and a bigger cabinet. Sorry, I'm not sure: I guess the new cabinet can accommodate those big tubes. I like the Beano tones, and I saw one of the earlier reissues years ago, but I never played through one. In the newer VOXes, I actually prefer a JJECC803s, as opposed to the vintage Telefunken, Ei (Yugo; used Telefunken tooling) and Mullard 12AX7s. I also used Brimar and the Telefunken-like Ei EL84s, but prefer the reliability and durability (they can withstand the high output voltages of the VOX) of JJEL84s. The exception being the NOS GE EL84s that were stock with my AC30TBX; they were great. Interesting info re: Orange. Marshall apparently didn't keep such good records over the decades. The only Bluesbreaker reissue that seemed accurate was the 50th Anniversary Model. They finally got the (alnico) speakers right, but with it being hand-wired in the UK, the price was exorbitant.
