Re: good valves??

they used to use Sovteks as I recall, however mine came fitted with JJ 6L6 power tubes and no-name Chinese 12AX7s in the preamp, which I switched for JJs.
Personally I find JJs are a pretty good all-round tube but there are many different opinions...

Re: How many pins does the mk50II footswitch need?

Hi Aron I don't remember the exact cable, I just bought some 6-core cable from an electronics shop. You could easily make this just as a cable.

Re: My current rig

wow, looks pretty simple, thanks for info! but how wires soldered to 6-pin din plug? and why have you decided to make a box, instead of soldering cable to 2 stereo jacks? (and by the way, i didn`d understand, which wire must be attached to the top of jack, and which to the middle) sorry for my engl...

Re: My current rig

That looks like a great rig Rich, but all that technology would scare me shitless! :lol: I'll bet that is real versatile though. :thumbup: It's not as scary as you might think, although I haven't used some of the advanced stuff e.g. MIDI or expression pedals controlling effects parameters. It does ...

You can then use the 'relay' settings on the G system to switch the MK50ii. For each patch on the G...
