Re: Is the SPAX7 a Better Tube All Around?

I'm looking to retube the preamp section (getting a new quad of JJE34L's now) of my Rivera S120. Should I go with TungSol in V1 or SPAX7? why?

Diezel Einstein into Mesa 90's half open back 412 cab

does or did mesa make 212 cabs with these speakers? thx.

Re: RK 2 vs. Roadster preamp differences

So my Rivera has that same boomy feel of a recto (with a slight EL34 in-your-face Marshall crunch). But the clean sucks bad.

What's a good price for a minty Roadster with a few yrs on warranty?

RK 2 vs. Roadster preamp differences

What are the diffs b/n RK2 and roadster in terms of the preamp? I think I read that the RK 2 had an upgraded ch1 (cleans) and brit on ch2. Is this true as well for Roadsters and since when? Is there a version 2 for Roadsters?

Re: NAD: Roadster Head

afaik, Mesa rebrands JJ tubes. you may as well buy from eurotubes, it's cheaper. i had problems with a brand new stiletto from mesa hollywood a few years back and the tubes kept shorting. returned for a refund.
