The amps are not even close to being the same.
Scooped mids & piercing treble are shared attributes.
There are lots of 10's that will give more bottom & less harsh treble.
I'd rather have a Tweed Bassman than either amp.
"Wondering if I could run two 16ohm loads to get back to 8ohms safely?"
"Is that position supposed to be standby?"
Yes,he didn't want to change the vintage look.
I run a Weber Blue Dog,15w,with a HUGE ceramic magnet (80 oz.w/neo helper) in mine and a 5v4 rectumfrier.
That's why we buy small amps.
That's a good reason to have several amps.
You are playing through the LOUDEST of the tweeds and wishing it was not so loud.
A 1x12,or a 2x10 would work a lot better.
You can unhook one of your speakers.
You can install less efficient speakers...
I understand what you're sayin' but why does it SOUND good ?
I have 12ay7,5751,12at7,12au7,12av7,& other computer tubes to sub.
It sounded good with the 12av7 and the 12ay7 in v3 as well.
Maybe my Deluxe has a different kind of preamp topology ...
I got a humbucker guitar and am looking for some clean headroom in the 'ole Brown Deluxe.
I put 12AY7's in v1 & v2 and a 12DW7 in v3.
The DW has a gain factor of 100 on one side and 20 on the other.
Will this hurt anything ?
It sounds good and is a lot cleaner...
Not worth it in a high gain amp.
Stupid money for Tele's & Mullards.
Let the Hi Fi Dweebs have 'em.
Not worth it in a guitar amp.
Old american ones are worth looking for.
They are in organs & pa's from years gone by.
