Cool! Now are these NOS 5881's or the new production that many say are NOT true 5881's?

Ive noticed the same things. For me, any Marshall based module just doesn't cut it thru 6L6's. I really dig them for the Fendery stuff, but not for any thing "Marshally" I have found though that the KT77 seems to sound good with all the modules. It is good mixture of El34 and 6L6. Ok, so I'm not nu...

Ultra Lead. Noisy?

As I said in another thread I dusted some of my less used modules off the shelf and played around. A half hearted effort to thin the herd. One of the Modules was my Original (not black stripe) modded Ultra Lead. Sure it's a specialty module because it does that liquid lead and was MADE for neck solo...

Some modules better suited for different power tubes?

I was messin around today after geting the 6L6 side of my RT2/50 back up today. (I had a fuse blown and left it, couldn't find the right fuse for a few months so everything went to the EL34 side in the meantime) Gotta say IMO some mods DEFINITELY prefer EL34's to 6L6 and vice versa! For Example, the...

Ok got the 315 ma's. Oddly the first one I put in blew, but since then it's been stable.

Thanks again. Now I can use my 6L6 side again, and now watch to see if I keep blowing fuses to see if there's a problem with the tubes and not just a fluke of heavy draw.

The .315A are fine in place of the .250A. There are places like Digikey Electronics and Mouser Electronics that carry all that kind of electronic stuff also. In fact we found that certain EL34 tubes actually draw very near or even a bit over .250A when driven into severe clipping/distortion (which ...

Hey, Thanks Bruce. The smallest amperage 5x20mm fuses radio shack carries now are the 315ma fuses. (Checked their website) I already have some of them, but they are a bit higher than the 250ma rating the amp has and that makes me nervous to use them. I ended up getting 1 1/4" x 1/4" 250ma fuses but ...

OK.. WHERE do I find fuses for the RT2/50?????

Says it all in the title. The fuses in the front panel next to the bias test points. I figured the local radio shack would have them (those that still stock "parts"). They had a fuse that met the specs, but when I took the fuse out I had forgotten how incredibly SMALL they are! WHERE can I get these...

Yes, I've experimented with different tubes with good results. I am of the opinion some modules prefer some tubes over others. Put another way, it's an easy tweak you can do to each module to get it one step closer to how you think that particular module should sound.

If Indoor Storm is the only dealer that's a shame. Not that they are doing anything wrong, but a little competition never hurts.

From what I remember (I only had the Ultra for a few weeks) easily as much if not more, and not so noisy.

No takers? Really!!! To be honest, $275 is a little steep bro. Generally single chan M4 modules go for about $250 (WITH Shipping) and under. If you dropped that price $50, it'd probably go within an hour of you posting it. Of course there's always eBay where you might get that price... Good Luck :)

The Twin/Deluxe just seems like a perfect idea to me. You basically get the sounds youd want out of both amps in one module. All you really want from a Twin is its cleans and all you really want from a Deluxe is its pushed sound. Now, you can get them both in one module so you save space in your he...
