Iím about to forray into modding my modules with a friend that enjoys working on amps. This would be our first forray into anything MTS related. Most projects have been pedals or small tube amps.

This may be crazy but just figured Iíd ask here first to see if itís been done, any advice, etc.

Has anyone modded V1 in their module to accept an EF86 tube instead of the usual 12AX7 type.

I was thinking this would be cool for a voxy, matchless, dr z type vibe.

Apart from the fact that the pinout is pretty much twisted, the heating could be an issue. AfaIk the tubes inside the module are heated with 12VDC whereas the EF86 should be heated with 6V AC or DC.
