I'm not much for haulin' two pieces of gear when the job can be done with one (i.e., Fender reverb tanks) , but stacks do give you some flexibility. 'Sides.. they're cool lookin'. :lol:


Surprisingly, the head and can are very light. You could easily carry the head in one hand and the can in the other.

I swung through Sam Ash after class today and grabbed a Groove Tube 12AX7. I'm still waiting to get a Brimar, but I decided I'd try a Groove Tube as well.

Nice, I like the looks of that strat.

Which leslie are you picking up?


Thanks! It's a 125 with an Eminence speaker in it.

Bill, each tube had its own voice, so to speak. The Brimar was the least gainy of all the 12ax7's I tried and it also produced the most rounded, mellow tone. Since the VJ doesn't have a tone control, it can be a little trebley sometimes, and the Brimar solved that problem. It sounded very musical with the Brimar and the Mullard. The Mullard came in a close second. It was still a bit trebley, but produced a great, smooth, breakup. I'm waiting for some money to transfer in to my PayPal account so I can get a Brimar tube. When I get it, I'll post some soundclips or a video demonstrating the difference.

Next to that would be my new Valve Junior stack. I took my Epiphone Triggerman, which I acquired early in my guitar playing days, and traded it in at Guitar Center for the Valve Junior cabinet. I ended up paying a total of $54 for the cabinet and the head was a gift for my birthday. I tried out several types of tubes in it today. Some Mullards, Brimars, GE, RCA, and various others. I never thought that a simple tube swap could make such a massive difference, but every tube I put it in there (they were all NOS from the 60's) made the amp sound vastly different.

Hopefully later this week I am going to be acquiring a Leslie cabinet as well.
