TC100, 6V6, Creamback M65’s. Glorious.

I picked up a new Avatar Vintage 212 loaded with g12m65 creambacks a couple weeks ago and am really loving it. I was using the Mesa Vertical 212 with V30’s and it was a little harsh for what I was after, which is a more vintage flavor. The lower sensitivity of the creambacks and the lower output of the 6V6 tubes all added up to a nice outcome for me in my home studio. I can get a little more into the master and channel volumes without it being as loud, and the 6V6s seem to run a little hotter and crunchier than the EL34’s at lower volumes. I was a bit surprised, because I love EL34 based amps. This head is a versatile little monster. I’m not unloading the Mesa 212 though, in the unlikely event I do get back into a band situation.
