    Default Pre/power tube testing, 5150iii 50 watt

    I had some time this afternoon to try some tube testing. These are all channel 2, gain 12 o'clock, low 12 o'clock, mid 2 o'clock, treble 2 o'clock, presence 10 o'clock. Volume is on 1. I recorded these using my phone. I don't have a high quality recording setup at my house. And, my power is very noisy. I don't get all the hiss when I'm at my rehearsal space. I'm not sure if I really hear much difference. Let me know what you guys think.

    I thought the Ruby power tubes and Tung Sol sounded best. JJ power tubes sounded a little dark and the Mullard in V1 sounded pretty thin with the Ruby power but better when matched with the JJs

    That's what I ended up keeping in it.
