    12AY7 for a Vox AC30TBX??

    Actually, now I am confused which is the preamp slot for the top boost channel. Isn't it the third from the right?

    12AY7 for a Vox AC30TBX??

    If I never use the vib/trem channel, would it be smart to remove those preamp tubes? I've heard Brian May does this and it helps the amp run somewhat cooler and reliable. My main concern is really the top boost channel volume.

    12AY7 for a Vox AC30TBX??

    Well in this case it would be the V8 slot correct? Its a british made AC30tbx so if I'm not mistaken, its the V4 slot that would be the preamp tube for the Top Boost channel. So you think V7 should remain a 12AX7? How about the V6 tube?

    12AY7 for a Vox AC30TBX??

I will never be able to crank it, besides I mostly use pedals for OD tones anyway. I'd like to have some more play with the...

    Fender Tele bridge pickup screws - adjustment issues

    Sorry guys let me clarify skipping. Imagine your turning the screw and the pickup is raising as your turning it, suddenly it drops back a few mm even though you haven't stopped turning the screw. Wouldn't cutting it shorter make it less maneuverable to height adjustments? I replaced the...
