    I am a newbie and pulled all the preamp tubes to replace them, but forgot to look at what order they go in. I have 4 AX7s and 2 AT7s

    could someone tell me the order they go in from left to right when looking at the amp from the back (or in other words, from the red jewel power light to the first input of the normal channel when looking at the back of the amp)

    Thanks for your response and help!

    I actually found the answer to my question as well! There is a sticker on the inside of the cabinet that has the order of the tubes right there! I am now embarrassed! Can this question be deleted so I don't look bad

    Don't worry about it. This is what the forums are for. Good luck with your Deluxe, just be a little careful with aligning the key so they seat properly.

    Is there any trick to seating them properly? I just pulled the old tubes out and then stuck the other ones with enough force to where the prongs seemed to be in as far as they could go.

    I kind of lined up the prongs with the holes in the socket and then just pushed it in till it wouldn't go in any more.

    That's all there is to it. Turn on the amp and enjoy the glow. :D
