Picked up the first one last week. Then came across this second one. Less than 100 digits apart in serial number. Local but different shop. The GAS won on this one LOL... needs a new handle and some casters (plates already on it).

First one has big logo, serial loop, and non stock Eminence Private Jacks. This one has a parallel loop, small logo, but has the original V30s. Haven’t opened it up yet to verify build date but trannies put it as a ‘93 possibly like the serial loop one (which was 9/93).

So 200W and about 200 lbs :D

Nice! A pair of Tremoverbs - worked for these guys. ;)

If I had a pair of them I would have to try running them dual-input with a Radial Twin City or such. I'll bet running one Red Channel Blues plus the other Vintage High Gain would be a crushing AF hard rock rhythm tone.

Nice! Now you can run EL-34s in one and 6L6s in the other and plug into both for ultimate destruction!
I switched my old tremoverb head to el34s and did not care for the results at all. I read where other people said the same, and I wished I had listened instead of buying those tubes☹

I have EL-34s in mine right now, haven't tried it with 6L6s yet but I always liked EL-34s or, even better yet, KT-77s, in Rectos. The TOV definitely has some extra sizzle with them I'm not sure I like though.

I like EL34 amps better, but the 6L6's bring out the best in the TOV, imo.
I was having severe Marshall G.A.S. and I played, through my TOV for the first time in a good while and thought, "Wow this thing sounds awesome. Maybe some EL34s would give it enough brit sound to stave off the GAS"
No such luck. I've been down the Marshall rabbit hole ever since.

This second ToV has Sovtek 5881WXT tubes in it. Hard to say how it affects the sound since each combo has different speakers which has a bigger effect.
