    Not sure what you mean, my friend.... :hmm:

    BTW, I have tried the Mullard (V1) and Mazda (v2) combo. We might have a winner here! Sounds like the second part of the clip but with some extra sheen on top.

    I'm too busy to really dig the sample but yes, this order seems to be a good choice. Glad to see you happy. See ya!

    That's fine!! I've been playing using this combination and it is indeed very cool.

    I second Freddy's great comment, not only for the tube choices, but also as other signal chain choices, from PUs to effects to amp features, are concerned. Gain is easy to come by; in my experience, so much so that I tend to actively seek components that do not inject excess gain from the get-go. I have an amp setting and a pedal both dedicated to providing as much gain as I could ever want, when desired. I absolutely avoid gain-y tubes.

    Thanks for your answer. Possibly the only exception is my GA5 amp (Valve Jnr style combo). By itself is rather dull and boring. Valves with higher gain and a booster pedal in front "wakes up" the amp significantly, making it usable for clean-ish tones.
