Epi vj Special Combo

Recommended Posts

the last two I bought were shipped with Sovtek EL84 power tube and EH 12ax7 preamp tube.


People usually swap out the Sovtek for a JJ but I like 'em both.

and a JJ on the 12ax7, too, but I can't tell any difference with mine!


earlier versions had chinese tubes.

the best change I ever tried was a 5751 preamp tube

I like the sovtek ok.. though I'd probably go jj easier if they didn't go south so often.

But that 30% gain drop and the tonal differences in the 5751 were right up my alley.
