It was way overdue for a retube. Just got a new quad of JJ EL34L's for my Hermansson modded Laney PA. The old ones were EL34L's too and they held up for years, So I figured I'd go with them again. The amp has a plate voltage of 580, Henric says he likes to bias them to about 20ma, So that's what I did. My god it sounds glorious in the room. I put a Tung Sol Gold pin 12AX7 in V1, I have a pair of Ruby HG 12AX7's in the two cathode follower slots, an old Peavey super 7, another Tung Sold Gold for channel 3 and a JJ for channel two. There are eight preamp tubes all together including the one for the PI and Loop. But man, it just sounds fresh again.
Anyways, here is a quickie little clip. Same setup as usual. SM57 in front of a Sheffield 1200 going into iRig Pre HD and straight into my iPhone 6s.

Guitar with low output HB into amp and a Vox Delaylab and DOD Rubberneck delay in the loop. The Sheffield 1200 speakers are in a Emperor 4x12.

I remember when you first got this. I've thought about this thing a few times over the past few years. Your clips of this thing always sound so cool.

Haha! Except he’s like 100X the player I am and his recordings sound awesome. For a lot of his clips he mixes a ribbon mic (Golden age I believe) and a Tascam recorder. I’m happy with the audio results of most of my clips especially since the setup is super simple , cheap and I do nothing to them. Thanks for the compliment though man.

Thanks man. A local buddy of mine had it for almost two years I believe. Glad to have it back for sure. Even if it sounded like crap, to me it’s still awesome eye candy. :lol:
