hello guyz ! I'm new on this board !

I'm french, and the owner of a nice DC10 combo (since end of january). I've changed the power tubes (for 4 Mesa's STR440 yellow ones), and it just sounds amazing ! (old tubes were very tired). I just use a modified Boss SD1 (for dirty clean sounds), a Cry Baby wha, a Electroharmonix DMM and a Boss CE2 with it, and I just get the sound I always wanted to have ! Play it with a 96 Fender Lonestar USA Stratocaster.

My preamp tubes are :

- V1 : Chelmer 12AX7 (discovered them with my Fender Hot Rod, very nice clean sounds, but crappy in OD)
- V2 : EH 12AX7
- V3 : Mesa 12AX7
- V4 : Mesa 12AX7
- V5 (reverb) : Chelmer 12AT7
- V6 (PI) : Mesa 12AX7

I still have some other tubes. As soon as I have some time, I'll try some other tubes, to see how it sounds.

:D

Congrats on the new amp! What difference did you observe when using the AT7 for the reverb slot compared to a AX7?

I find it larger and smoother. It sounds like the reverb in Hallelujah of Buckley. It also sounds louder (with the 12AX7 I first thought that my reverb was out of order, it sounded tiny, and not very loud).

Very interesting! I'll have to swap some tubes out tonight... Thanks for the info!
