Picked up a Epi Valve Special at the pawn shop yesterday. So far, I'm liking it. Using it as practice amp, since I use my Palomino V32 for gigs. Couple of questions, for anyone with experience with them:
1. With humbuckers, the tone sounds as if I rolled the guitar's tone down slightly. Thought this might be due to it being a closed back combo, so I removed the back panel. Not much of a change. Any ideas?
2. What should I change the tubes and speakers out with? And can I change the tubes myself, or does it need biasing?
Thanks for the help!
