Why does the Cub have so few pre amp valves, yet supposedly sound so good??

Power Tubes: 2 EL84
Pre-Amp Channel 1: 12AX7
Rectifier Tube 5AR4

Even my old Blues Junior has more pre amp valves.

Really curious??

Do you just mean preamp only? My Cub IINR Had 3 Ax7s. Preamp, tonestack, PI. How many would you like it to have?

BTW its the best amp ive ever played.

It's not saying there is only one 12ax7 in the preamp. It's saying that the only channel is a 12ax7 channel (as opposed to other Bad Cats that have multiple channels, some including EF86 channels)

I dont think thats what he meant or he wouldnt have mentioned the Blues Jr. which is also a single channel AX7 only amp.

Pretty sure the Cub II has two, if not three, preamp valves. It just says 12ax7 as the type of preamp valve used and is not indicative of the number of valves.

Also, number of valves does not mean good/bad tone.
