    Anyone put 6L6's in there Deluxe Reverb?

    How does it sound?

    Is there much involved with this mod?

    I haven't done it but I know that Pete Anderson, guitarist / producer for Dwight Yoakem used to do that to all his Deluxe Reverbs.

    Some people like it, others don't. It doesn't increase power much if at all.

    Rebiasing is all that's required.

    I tried that once with 5881s. Not much difference. Good NOS 6V6s will make a dramatic difference in a Deluxe.

    Yeah, the Deluxe isn't going to push those 6L6s very hard at all.

    Yes I have. Not worth doing IMHO. Not very much increase in headroom and I prefer the "sweetness" of 6V6's.
