    I heard from a guitar tech that Eddie use to pull some of the preamp stage tubes half in, half out of their sockets. I don't own a tube amp and I don't know what effect this would have, nor do I know if Eddie ever really did this or if it would even work, but I've never heard of it before and thought I'd pass it along to see what you guys think.

    I think what you may mean is that Edward pulled 2 of his tubes out. I've heard of doin that. You can then basically crank your amp and get half the volume out of it. Would make sense with a non master amp like Eds old super.
