    Did they go in no mods?


    NO, you have to connect pins 1 and 6 i think. Can't remember right this moment. But 6L6 tubes don't have the two pins connected. it really is a simple mod any local tech can do. Cost me $65.00 from my tech to do it.

          Pfff I just plugged the damn things in and went.



          Things really start to happen with this amp when the volume hits half way... it's pretty remarkable to be honest. I've got the nova system in the fx loop with the input gain set to 0 and the output set to -7 dB for a little volume reduction which actually translates into a pretty hefty volume cut overall but hey.. it works. Still loud as hell in the room though... near stage volume.


          Anyways, it's actualy 2 different sets of ruby tubes. One is the pair that came with the renegade and the other is a pair I got from laura that ordinarily live in the JTM45. I've got her burning in a quartet of SED's for me though this week when she gets a chance so hopefully I'll have those next week.

          What I did find interesting though was that all 4 tubes are required to be in the amp for it to work. I was under the impression that you could just use 2 in the innermost sockets and run it in 50 watts (with the switch at 50 watt setting) but not so. So far, that's the single thing that's sort of crept up into the back of my head that if I have a power tube failure during a show or something, if I don't have a spare tube to use, the amp is rendered useless. I've had a tube go out in the nitro before and simply flipped the switch to 50 watts and pulled that tube and the other outer most tube and ran 2 tubes in the middle sockets and it got me through the show.

          Wonder how hard it would be for mike to tweak that to operate at half power with 2 tubes...

          I haven't tried it yet with the non HDM amp to see if that would work.

              It does work.. I ran my 100H for a while with the inside tubes.. You have to plug a 16ohm cab into the 8ohm jack, or a 8ohm cab into a 4ohm jack when your doing it though.. Something to do with the trannys..

                  I can't believe you just popped them in.. That might be why it sounds so different.. Did you bias it?

                      no.. hell with bias. my ears tell me the bias is just right


                      Edit: I take it upon myself that part of my job with demo'ing these amps is to really put them through the ringer to test not only their sound but their durability. They get knocked around in the trailer to and from shows and with the tubes, I'm seeing how idiot proof the amp is without intentionally being abusive.

                      So far, they've both proven incredibly resilient amps.

                            have you tried the 50w setting with only 2 tubes in the outer sockets? Maybe that's how the switch is wired up. An amp can use either the inner or the outer sockets to go on half power.

                              I just read the combo is different from the head? Why does the combo have more controls?

                                The 50w combo? It's a completely different amp, it has the crunch channel or the head (which is the channel with less gain) and a dedicated clean channel.
