  • Peavey XXX tubes . . .

    I'm suspecting that the tubes on my recently purchased Peavey XXX are in need of replacing. With the settings on the Ultra and Crunch channel identical, the Ultra channel is a little lower in volume. I've been wanting to change the V1 tube anyways so I could lower the gain a little, so maybe its time to invest in a new set of tubes. As far as pre and power tubes, what's recommended? I've been itching to try EL34's. EL34's on the 5150 sound great, but I don't know how it would sound with this amp.

        I've been seeing a lot of YouTube videos of a JSX, and wow! Especially the Van Halen riffs on the JSX sound killer. Would a tube swap get the XXX in that ballpark or is the JSX a different animal?
