    You know, I just put one of those in that control tone on my Epi Valve junior and as I posted on this thread the control works but it did bring in hiss, I wonder if it's the capacitor.

    If the tone cap failed in a Valve Jr. you'd hear some scratchiness on the volume control when you move it back and forth. [thumbup]

    FYI, if you're using mica capacitors, there have been lots of failures reported of these Chinese Suntan capacitors like these. I'm not sure if it's just the ones marked "SM" or what. I just had one fail and people in the amp business have been talking about it. We're getting rid of all the ones we have and replacing them with Cornell Dublier caps.

  3. In Topic:Tube Replacements.. Vox thinking ahead?

    BTW, China actually has two tube manufacturers other than the Schuguang factory. One of them makes the premium tubes that the Tube Store sells - I forget the brand. I don't know much of anything about the other brand. The Shuguang (Sino) 12ax7 tube is the only new 12ax7 that's really usable for any cathode follower position in a Marshall. Most other brands fail at a high rate, according to Bruce Egnater. Bruce said they had thousands of JJ 12ax7's go bad in the field and it was a gigantic problem. [scared]

    It's too bad that the Nutube is incompatible with other tubes so you can't just swap them out to check them out and see how they work.
