So, I've had my EVJ for a while now. I bought it modified, stock tubes and OT, a few resistors changed, and a tone pot added. My cab has Celestion GT75's in it. I built a Bit-Mo 10uator for it, so I can run it without my dear old mother losing her mind.
I run it with a Coffin Blood Drive in front of it, and for the most part, I'm pretty happy with it. However, I do want to to get a more modern heavy tone out of it. I've played some Mesa's, and I love the Peavey Revalver Mk III software's 5150 and Dual Recto tones. So that's where I'd like to head.
I just bought a Danelectro Fish n' Chips (7-band EQ), as well as an Electro Harmonix 12AX7 High Gain, and an EL84 Platinum, but they're in the mail.
I guess my question is, will these purchases start pointing me in the right direction?
Will I need to bias my amp? And if so, is there a "math hates me" guide to doing so?
I've been told numerous times that a Hammond ESE is the way to go with an OT, but I just didn't have the funding for it this time around. I was also told by one of you fine people (before the board move) that an ESE will power a 6L6, which immediately grabbed my attention, as Rectos use em. What's involved in switching tube types?
Thanks in advance guys!
