    Picked up an HG30 from a fellow TGPer and am in the awful "waiting for the delivery guy" stage. I know the amp can use EL34s without rebiasing - but can KT77s also be used? Also, in 6v6 mode, can I pull the outside 2 power tubes out for 15 watts or so? These are just some things I have been wondering about while I wait.

    Thanks

    Not sure on kt-77's....I do not believe pulling tubes is allowed by the warranty...I could be wrong, but that is the word I received.

    KT77s are usable in the custom Thirty so I'm guessing yes. Not sure about running a pair of 6v6

    Your options are running all 4 6V6's, or two EL34's, 6CA7, or KT77.
    Do not run this amp on two 6V6 tubes!
