    I picked up a Rocker 30 head recently in a trade, and just now discovered the power tubes are 6V6s. I thought these were EL84 amps? Am I mistaken?

    Every rocker 30 I've ever seen has had EL-34's in it, but I have heard of some people that have swapped 6v6 into it on order to lower the wattage, but not without some modification to the amp at a component level. I'd ask the guy you got it from if he's had this done? Or if he just popped the tubes in there. (more likely the case)


    This is what seems to be the "official" take on it (about halfway down):

    Good luck straightening it all out! :)

    Many thanks for the link. I have a few Orange dealers in my hometown, so I should be able to get it sorted out. I definitely want to restore this baby to full power!
