Tone from Power tubes
« on: March 27, 2008, 07:18:02 pm »
Just wondering.. does the type of power tubes affect your tone when your volume is low? Or does it only affect your volume when the power tubes start to sag?? Anyone know?

I would say yes, an example would be KT88s vs. EL34s...

There probably is a difference but I'd say that it's not as noticeable as when the tubes start to get enough voltage to cause 'em to sag.
