Not too long ago Gabriel mentioned that he was thinking of changing the power tubes in his Dual Rectifier. I just came across this demo that might be of some use. I suggest watching it in HD to get the best sound resolution. Enjoy wink.gif

Cool video! I can note the difference but it's not so big playing only 1 string, by the way I like the EL-34 color a bit more. What about you guys?

I'm a 6L6 person because they tend to have more low end and are in your face. I also asked my guitar dealer and he said that if you want a brighter tone with more of the rock crunch go with the EL-34s.

In this particular video, I like the EL34 better. It has more of a midrange "honk". I generally like both equally. Choices, choices...
