  • EL34's enter the JCA100... Recordings

    2 lead tracks done to backings. First one was done with the JP6 and the other done with the Tokai.

    IMO, the amp sounds ten times better with EL34's.... no idea why. Didn't get NEAR this much increase in quality of sound from KT88's but the 34's got rid of some of the low end compression/darkness and added a bit more upper end bite/clarity without any harshness.

    And one I did last night using the carvin with the nailbomb bridge pickup and also used lots of the CK1 room mic in the mix. The nailbomb I find has a certain thickness to it that keeps it from being super percussive but IMO, it's a good thing for what I do with it so..

    This one is just the amp. (yeah the devin needs some cleaning up.. only been working on that one for a couple days )

    Wow man, your clips are just simply badass.


    The leads on the JP6 clip rival anything I've heard for that style. Glorious.

    Maybe I should just off the Tweaker and JCA combo for a single 100HDM. No... bad idea... must keep small amps. no more half stacks. dammit.

      oh my... I NEED to try EL34's now. What kind of mods are involved so the amp can work with them??

        They probably go in with no biasing...

        I really doubt it's a mod though...

              Generally, the socket pins are wired different for ELs and 6L6's.

                  Curse you Drew, & you too Jet City!...... I'll be lucky to be able to afford the Afterburner when it comes out. (which, by the way, when exactly will that be? My gas is explosive!)

                  Honestly, I'm listening to the 2nd track right now. Phenomenal, man, really. Love how everything sounds. If only I could get my V3 to sound close to that.... Dude, really.... tracks will go right into my iPod. Can't wait to hear them in my car. really, really great playing and, of course, great tone.

                  P.S. Thanks for the info on Scott Splawn's friends kid. Hopefully someone here will win & we can collectively make more out of this opportunity...

                  pay a couple grand and get a Gibson<br />

                    Can you do a clip of the clean with the el34s in it? Even a youtube video would be fine.

                        I knew you guys would like the JCA with EL34's. Been running mine that way since i bought mine months ago. And as always FRPC , your clips sound awesome. Your vids you did from the beginning is what convinced me to get the JCA100H amp.

                            I'm guesing Ruby's or SED's .
                            I use Winged=C=EL34's in mine.

                              Did they go in no mods?
