    In the moment,.. hopefully.
    in changing the EL84s to 6V6s in a Fender Pro Jr. I just got a great cab made by a fellow forumite RL in florida. I now have a 1x 12 Pro Jr. Can I without too much pain and hassle switch it over to run 6V6s.......

    Or if one of you nice gents would be kind enough to tell me where to go.........easy there.

    You may find it is cheaper to buy a 6v6 amp.

    Might be true. But I could swear I heard of someone else doing this. Anyone got any ideas.

    Well, I think you'd have to change the tube sockets at the very least, and I don't know if the stock xformer is up to the task. I'm pretty sure it'd be cheaper and way less hassle to just buy a 6V6 amp than to convert a Pro Jr.

    It could be done. You would have to replace the tube socket PCB and hand wire all the sockets. It would be tedious, but it could be done.

    Ummmm... NO.

    Totally different circuits that sound nothing alike.
