Re: Anybody know the RM20 plate voltage?

I'm guessing you want to know the voltages to see if your 6V6 tubes won't get destroyed? I'm curious, the EL84 is a 9 pin tube. The 6AQ5 is a 7 pin tube. Do you have a separate converter for each? There isn't a way to A/B a 6AQ5 against a 6V6, but what I've read is that the 6AQ5 is the same as a 6V6...

Re: My new Tube Tester

Wow 10 year old necro-thread. Clicking that 10 year old link set off all sorts of red flags in my browser. Sounds like it was a good tube tester, but at $800, I'm guessing they didn't sell many and went out of business. I have the VT-1000, which gets the job done at a reasonable price (not the $500 ...

Re: WTB: GTO Judge

IMO the Scary is more "out of control" and I prefer it for solos but rhythm also. The Judge in more "under control" and I prefer for rhythm. I have both loaded in my RM100LB right now. The icing on the cake was when I recently loaded a quad of USA 6550A's in it. I have Magazines going way back where...

Re: Nitro

Might need to look at the bigger picture (power amp and speakers). Playing a Nitro pre-amp into a tiny power amp isn't going to have lots of tight bass.

Hopefully someone will answer you. I have many modules, but they are all mostly stock.

Re: V2 Module Tone Stack Tube Matter?

Depending on the module, any tube position can have an impact.

Fender circuits might have the tone stack right after one gain stage. With Marshall it is toward the back.

Try it and see.

FYI, the Laney Posse forum died. The last message was to go to facebook.

I hate facebook.

Re: Is there a more active forum?

I feel like I got into MTS at the end of life as well LOL!

The good about this is that all the tweaking had been figured out, and the prices had gone down from the peak.

I like the amps and hope the make a comeback.

Re: Randall RM50 best clean mod?

I'm guessing you have the gain turned low and the volume turned up to keep the preamp from clipping? If the only time this is an issue is at practice I wouldn't be sweating it. Another preamp module will be $$$ and won't sound like the Blackface (I have one and it is my favorite clean). New tubes ar...

Thanks. Glad I didn't just smash the clamps down LOL.

These 6550s are gathering dust. The RM100 is the only amp I have that can use them.

Using 6550 in a RM100

The 6550 has a large base that doesn't fit in the tube retainer/clamp. How do you deal with the tube retainers? Do you just smash it down? Or do they need to be removed? Thanks. BTW, I have a Lynch head, and in old mags he used to talk about using 6550's. I have a set just gathering dust, so why not...
