    For those of you who have played Bruce's Amplifier No. 8, I just wanted to know what you thought of the master volume on that amp.

    Thank you.

    It's great! ;)

    Seriously... The octal 6SL7 preamp tubes (no 12AX7s!) have a very power-tube-like sound, so the character doesn't radically change whether you are pushing the preamp hard or the power amp or both. IOW, you can get a great "amp" sound at low volumes.

    I played a #8 at last years LA Amp show. That amp sounded so awesome. I will own one someday... :bonk :drool
