    I'd like to try something like that in an EL34, some time.
    I need pictures of your drummer in his booth/cage/room http://drummersbehindglass.com

      My "low-power alternative" has always been taking out two of the 4 EL84 tubes from my Mesa Boogie. Voilŗ! 30 to 15 watts in an instant. (you gotta know though, that you have to remove the outer or the inner tubes, that's how the pairs are arranged. Never take out the first or last two together, or else you'll blow up something...)
      It might not be
      The prettiest thing that you'll ever see
      But itís a new day, oh baby, itís a new day

        i know 15W right pretty low wattage. 5w power tube distortion been to loud for church for me.
