  • Where do you buy your JJ's?

    I'm thinking it's about time to get a handle on these glass bottles, preamp and power. A link will do great. Thanks.

    I got mine through my local (not really... it's a 45 minute drive on a bad day, 15 on a good, god I hate traffic) guitar technician.
    You can get a suprisingly good country guitar tone out of a Marshall Halfstack.

      Bob is the best person in the world to buy tubes from, and he only has JJ's. It is his business, so he knows these tubes COMPLETELY!!!!! I am ardering some from him right now. He takes the matched duo's and quad's that are sent to him and rematches them perfectly himself. NO MORE LUCK OF THE DRAW FROM THE STORE SHELVES. You can call him up and tell him what ratings he sent last time, and he will send the exact rating back to you. I cannot say enough about his way of doing business. I will not buy tubes from ANYONE else.

                  I use them in my Poweramp as phase invertors (ECC83S) and Power Tubes (6L6GCs).. I play all covers (Mix of rock, hardrock, classic rock, etc..) and do the heavy metal stuff on the side.

                    They work well to smoothen out harsh tone. I was debating between JJs and those Shuguang Chinese pres for my Triamp and I finally decided on JJs. They kill the gain a bit so that was disappointing for me, but things are much smoother with them in, so I use a different preamp tube in the V1 position to up the gain.

                        Re: Where do you buy your JJ's?

                        I have never dealt with Revolution Guitar, can someone tell me whether they match AND grade their tubes?

                        If not, I would rather spend the extra $10 and have them graded for their intended use and performance.

                        If they simply take a pile of tubes and find some that match the first one , you wind up with 2 or 4 tubes that work well together for sure, but what are they gonna sound like? Are they going to "mush" out at high volume, be way too clean to ever break up,etc ?


                        I looked on the Revolution site and did not see anything about if they graded them or how they went about the grading process.

                        Somebody enlighten me..........

                          I went with Bob at Eurotubes. He had experience with my amp and made recommendations based on that. Also, he marked a special one for the phase inverter spot.

                          The JJ's warmed up and smoothed out the tone, eliminating some of the harshness.

                            Don't overlook the GT Mullard Re-issues. They are supposed to kick some tail. However, if I was ordering JJ's, I'd order from Bob. I generally order my tubes from www.kcanostubes.com , and Mike stopped carring JJ's because of a 25% reject rate....interesting.

                            I have a matched JJ in my phase inverster slot and have been very happy with it though.....

                              What tubes did he recommend for your phase inverter spot? or what "special" with it?
