at gig volume mine sounds best with the regular old 12ax7's.

Once again, I think it depends on the combination of mic, amp, and speakers, and even tube brand. With 3 ax's I couldn't get close to gig volume. I have had luck with using an ay in position 1, and ax in position 2, and an au in position 3, but that's just me.

2011-03-18T01:06:13+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: Fender Pro Junior]]> i use mostly either a cm powered bullet or a high z dynamic electrovoice m43u mic, occasionally a shure mc151 crystal mic. my results sound good to my ears tube wise. can't recall exactly what speakers the bassman is running but they are a good mixup fo low and high end breakup. the silvertone has a later model jensen ceramic.
actual brand of tubes and whether they are vintage make a difference as well.

2011-03-17T15:44:13+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: Fender Pro Junior]]> first tube you want to change. This is based on what I discovered from research, and I may be completely off base here, but it certainly held true for me. I spent a week swapping between ax's, ay's, at's and au's, and without fail an ax in position 1 yielded the crappiest results.

For what it's worth, I found this page to be extremely helpful:

Good luck.

I make up for a lack of technical knowledge by using trial and error! These are preamp tubes and are therefore less finicky than power amp tubes (which might need to be biased). My technique would be to try it out one way (use a couple of different mics, mark where you stand in relation to the amp so you can repeat the position, write down what volume you get feedback). Then swap the tubes around (hint - wait a while for them to cool down) and repeat! Pick which configuration you like best.

I've got a Johnson T25R and finished up using one Y (first slot) and one X most of the time, but I occassionally put two Ys in. Two 'U's sucked the life out of it.

Good luck

I am interested in a 12AY7 after reading that AT7's wouldn't do the trick very well in the first position of the preamp slot.

On the Fender Pro Junior, would I go (1) 12AU7 and (2) 12AY7 or the other way around in the 2 preamp slots to get decent volume and warmth which I prefer to honking type blues harp?

I really do appreciate any help in this.....

Feel free to ask any questions or help clear this up for me?
