Pretty Incredible


Verified Buyer

I got my 1974x in a trade. It sounded great, but was a bit noisy. Figured it was just the way they are. I have no idea if the previous owner re-tubed it or anything. It eventually started having an issue where there was some micro-phonic (is that right) stuff going on and then it started having problems just turning on and warming up. I swapped the pre-amp tubes with cheap JJ's - no difference. So my search started for new tubes. How could I resist the write up of this set from Stewmac? So I pulled the trigger and bought them. All of the existing tubes turned out to be JJ's. After I installed the new tubes and fired up the amp, I didn't really hear anything. Just a mild "it's on" kind of hiss. I actually thought it wasn't working because it was so quiet. Then I plucked a string and wham! Huge, glorious, beautiful hand wired Marshall tone. It sounds SO good. SO much better than before. Even with the amp cranked it's wonderfully quiet when at idle. And the tone is that very sought after vintage crunch. Rich in harmonics and color, extremely responsive. I can't recommend this set enough. If it's time to change your 1974x tubes, get this set, heck even if it's not time to change them, get this set - especially if you're running JJ's in your amp right now. Literal night and day difference for the better - WAY better.
