    The amp, IMO, is almost perfect, regarding tonality and versatility, but putting 12DW7's in the gain and EQ slots clear up the slightly excessive fizz in the drive channels. Try it out. The clean channel has a nice spank too.

    Im currently using a long plate 12AX7 in V1 as well.

    V1 - JJ ECC803S
    V2 - ECC832
    V3 - ECC832
    V4 - EC83S

    These are good amps that take some effort to get the best out of. Cool beans.

    PS. Had you said something along the lines of "fender..." people would be tripping over themselves to comment. Snore. lol

    Really good amps, always ran 6l6gcs and used the low gain input. Not much else around $500 touches it imho. A bit too compressed for me these days but I rocked the XXX for three years and the JSX for four.
