I have a Duel rectifier maverick combo and i was thinking about putting all new tung-sol tubes in it. Has anyone ever used these in their amp and if so what was the tone like? Can i damage my amp using non-mesa branded tubes?

With some tube vendors, you can tell them what amp you are buying for, and they will select tubes that are more suitable for a Boogie. The only caveat is that if your amp was still under warranty, then using non-Mesa power tubes would void the warranty.

I have almost all Tung-Sol tubes in my Electra Dyne and absolutely love the tone I get from that amp with those tubes. It's a totally different animal than your amp, but in mine it delivered the tone I was after. Just keep in mind that tone is subjective. :-)
