    My advice to you is to stay away from ANYTHING inside the amp unless you ABSOLUTELY know what you're doing until someone who gets paid to do it shows you how. Even if it's off, it can still kill you.

      I didn't know they made a jcm900 clone, interesting.

      I wish they'd make a (series 1) valvestate clone. the originals sound great but typically have issues that cost more to fix than the amps are worth.

      ooo, just went to the website - I want me a V5!

          Unfortunately, there´s no real way to retube the pre and power sections without having the retube run about 100$ incl. rebiasing. Unless you´re using cheap, unmatched tubes. However, as much as I hate Bugera and Behringer for their reverse engineered knockoffs and love hearing stories about their failure in critical situations, even they don´t deserve to be tortured in that way. Better to throw the amp off a building instead.


          Side note / personal recommendation: IMO the Backup amp has to be even more robust and reliable than the main amp, as it is essentially the "failsafe" for tours and recording. I personally would want something that makes a good Marshall look like a flimsy Bugera and not the other way around... Just my 2 cents
          I'm with you Zerb!. I think Uli Behringer is incapable of any original thought. He and his Chinese "partners" are a perfect match for each other but are terrible for the musician's community and the innovative companies they rip off on a continual basis. If people would stop buying this sh*t, it would close him down or make him change his business ethics (probably not).

            We should all stop stealing home designs as well. Bad ethics.

              anyway, the guy i bought it from asked me what "ahhmage" my cab was when i tested it....
              yes... "ahhmage". he said a non-existent word wrong. hahaha i couldnt help but laugh out loud. He still sold me the head and noe its his loss. becasue its a steal.

              MY REAL REASON FOR THIS THREAD:

              it runs 5881 power tubes and ec83 preamp tubes. I havent delt with either before. i want a tube that will sound raw, and powerful. and i dont feel like spending over 100 for a retube if i dont have to.

              any suggestions?
              For a 1990 get jj e34 l. Not el 34s e34 l power tubes and jj ecc83 pre amp tubes and a jj rectifier tube jj jjec 84 i beleive google that and that amp will rock so hard
