Is it possible to pull 2 of the power tubes from my Artisan 100? And should I pull the inner pair or outer pair? Does this effect the ohms setting? Specifically where I am using a 16 ohms single cab or 2 16 ohm cabs for an 8 ohm "stack" And does the amp need to be re-biased?

Not sure how the Artisans are setup but I used to do this on my Carvin VT50s. IF the Artisans are the same as most amps, pull the 2 outer tubes (One from each side, gain and clean). It will affect the Ohms (Again, if it's the same as most amps).

Note that the difference, probably, won't be as dramatic as you may expect.
