    Plexi-ish circuit amp.

    I found that a Groove tube Gold 12AX7C followed by a ANOS Raytheon Long Black plate in an EL34 based Plexi-ish circuit gives an articulate yet smooth edge of breakup tone. It sounds beautiful playing it home alone.

    In a band context, there simply aren't enough mids on tap to cut through and be forward in the mix.

    I'm thinking the GT Chinese is a little too hollow in the mids.

    Can anyone suggest a replacement NewPro tube for V1 that gives the articulate breakup of the chinese, but with some more "tone" - eg. mids
