Tweaker 15w combo. Bought it used $350. Had an NOS 12au7, and 2 Tung Sol's in it.

First thing I did was run it through every electric guitar I own (six) and then I tried every tube combo I had in my immediate possession (12AX7 = GT-C, JJ, Sovtek-WB, No Name, Fender, Tung Sol, NOS & 6V6= Ruby, JJ, EH)

I ended up with the NOS & Tung Sol and JJ's. Big Vox & Marshall type cleans and marshall-like growl.

Nice amp. It will be a great addition to my others. My only complaint is that it has TOO MANY options. Sometimes you just want to plug into it and play.

Great amp, I love mine. I have yet to try different tubes in it, but it sounds great as is, so I can only imagine. It seems very quiet for a combo, in terms of tube rattle and such, which is very nice. I tend to stick on the Marshally side of things.

While it does have lots of options, I only see 5 knobs when I look at it. I found my settings, and now I hardly notice the little switches. It is nice to have those switches when you want a different sound though!

I've used Tweakers as my only "real" amps since about last April. Great sounding amps. And yeah, loads of options, but unlike a lot of amps with lots of options (Mesa?), I find it hard to get a bad tone out of them. They're pretty special :)

Yep, great amp! You can still plug'n'play though - just find your favorite settings and leave the knobs there. :)

For me, that's the switches at ac-vintage-tight-normal and all knobs around 1:00, except for the master at 3:00 or higher. That's with the band, of course. Too loud for the house. Also, that's for my Tele. Settings would change for other, thicker-sounding guitars.

As for tubes, I have New Sensor Tung-Sol 6V6's for power and then the little guys are V1=Chinese TJ Full Music 12ax7, V2 = New Sensor "Mullard" ECC83, and V3 = ANOS Tungsram. For some reason, the Tungsram in the phase inverter position seems to make a really nice difference in the tone. It tightened and sweetened things up over previous tubes I had in there.
