ouch, I can't defend the poor service, but I am working on improving our response and delivery times.
I've been working like a madman in the shop getting caught-up on back-orders, and will be more active in public discussions once the folks that are hanging in there get taken care of.
Do you mean you're off to the workbench to rewire the tube socket?
The AC15 uses an EF86 preamp, which is not plug'n play with a 12AX7 or 5751. It probably won't fry the amp immediately, but it may short through the 12AX7 / 5751.
Just checked in here and saw all these nice comments, thanks folks!
Hey Chuck! (Toneranger58) you will notice right away that the G1265 sounds much darker and smoother on the top end than the G12H30, which tends to be a bit crunchy when paired with the BM88.
Wow, this is a cool discussion.
Well thanks to Norm who alerted me to this thread (happy birthday btw!)

If you want the absolute best in vintage restoration Neal's is it!

Try replacing the V4 tube, that's the PI/Driver tube and if it's not 100% it will have that effect.
Unfortunately, new production tubes can be a little iffy.
Pop in one of those spare preamp tubes that came with...
I got hyped on monster about 10 years ago too and I bought the gold, black, and white.
The definitely suck tone.
The vovox completely blew me away from the first note:
I've tried many high end cables, and they were all better than than the monster, but the...
Sure, email or PM me and I can tell you anything you want to know about features, etc.
I don't think there's really a need for a low power mode with the '22'.
If anybody disagrees, please jump in here, but it's well suited to quiet applications...the preamp works very well with the master volume.
I just wanted to jump in here and say that we don't offer assembled kits at this time (but we will soon).
The kit line is a high-quality, simplified version of the amp line, designed as a no-frills amp platform that a builder can expand on.
The production amps have more features and...
FWIW, we're doing a bunch of new clips...the clean examples on the site only cover a small portion of it's range.
The ODE and Blue Monkey amps have cleans that we're extremely happy with...big bottom and lively harmonics, great headroom.
So many people have been asking for SRV/Mayer/Schofield...
