Hi everyone,
this is my first posts, and i ve read you all posts, very useful information, and now got i few questions,

it has more than a week since my little one arrived at my place, and my preferred setup is this:
overdrive channel
gain at 10 (10 it's full way up)
volume at 2 or 3

sweet woman tone!!!

my question is: in this setup which valve is broke up? ecc82 or ecc83?

The Preamp valve will typically be doing most of the work. The volume needs to be right up for the power amp valve to be really breaking up.

The result when used from side to side a loud tube amp offers the finest sound compared to using the guitar result on its own. Treble boost before diffusion causes a liquidity, flat breakup tone.
