I have come to conclusion that most amps i hear with EL 84's is the sound I love. there is a rich chimey breakup i love. the 65 amps london and london pro are good examples, there is a chandler amp as well i love ( not the same but i bought the pluging of it from UA). Chandler GAV19T
6:00 clean and that bell chime
i have been listening to different tests between 6v6's, el 34's and el 84's and in everyone i hear i love that sound (ef 86's get hon mention). and it got me thinking and wondering....
what else is it that brings this sound out? how important are these tubes really? what is the full amp build like? signal path and what other choices really make the sound? i see other channels like 12ax7 and custom wound transformers vs machine, speaker choice (i love the ASW Crossroads speaker) and how do you match a speaker to what you have built?
Just very interested in that sound and how they are built and really I guess a discussion on Amps in general and thought I would bring it here to the exterts.
