    damn what it takes to retube a drri and peavey classic 30
    ordered 2 matching pairs of 6v6 groove tubes and 2 matching quartets of el84's from musicians friend

    el84's arrived packed in thin tissue, half are broken
    6v6s arrive in same packing but are fine...idiots as musicians friend

    so I ordered jj el84s from eurotubes and went about sending back the broken tubes to musicians enemy

    got my eurotubes Thursday, put them in last night...thin sounding...have to pick hard to get any sound and NO clean tone...what the hell...realize I ordered el844's (low power/headroom) tubes...contact eurotubes and I can send them back to be replaced no problem...

    at least the 6v6's sound awesome in the drri

    so lessons learned
    musicians enemy is a joke,,,I am done with them
    eurotubes is a great place to get tubes, excellent customer service
    destiny is telling me to get rid of my classic 30 lol
