This listing is for one Premium Tube Set for your blackface or silverface Fender Super Reverb, Pro Reverb, Vibrolux Reverb, or Bandmaster Reverb amplifier.
Bring your amp back to life!!!!
Tube quality is a major factor in the tone your amp delivers. I have spent years listening to
different tubes and how they sound.
All tubes sound different in different amps, and at different points in
the amplifier circuit. This tube
set represents thousands of hours of tube swapping &
listening. All tubes in this set
have been selected based on the way they sound & perform at different
points in your Fender amplifier’s circuit.
Your Fender has the potential to be one of the best sounding
amps you’ve ever played through.
Give it the respect it deserves. I have found these tubes to be the best sounding
current production tubes available for your vintage Fender (IMHO). Remember, cheap tubes sound
cheap! Good tubes sound AMAZING.
***I have a very limited supply of NOS/NIB military spec
Phillips 12AT7 preamp tubes, made in the USA. These tubes perform exceptionally well in the reverb driver
& phase inverter of your vintage Fender amp. They will last years longer than any current production
12AT7 available today. They even
hold up under the stress/abuse from the extremely high voltage used in your
Fender’s reverb driver! Two
of these ultra premium tubes are included in these sets... while supplies last.***
This Tube Set includes:
2 x TAD 6L6GC black plate Power Tubes: MATCHED PAIR of real
black plate 6L6’s (see photos)! the "Tone Quest Report" just reviewed these tubes and compared them to the vintage RCA blackplate 6L6s! These are the best sounding current production 6L6 power tubes on the market for vintage Fender amps!!
2 x Tung-Sol 12AX7 tubes: These are my favorites
for use as the first position preamp tube in the normal & vibrato
channels. Exceptional tone!
2 x TAD 12AX7 tubes: These work very well in the reverb recovery stage (VERY quiet) & in the
2 x NOS/NIB Phillips 12AT7 tubes: For
your reverb driver & phase inverter.
1 x Electro Harmonix 5U4GB *or* 1 x Sovtek 5AR4 (GZ34) Rectifier Tube (add$10):
Please specify which rectifier tube your circuit requires. If no rectifier tube is specified, the 5U4GB will be included as the default rectifier. Please add $10 at checkout for the GZ34.

OTHER AVAILABLE UPGRADES (SOLD SEPARATELY):
Blackface mod kits:
Complete kits for full blackface conversion of your silverface Fender amp. Includes all necessary parts, diagrams & detailed instructions.
Optimize your power tube performance with matched resistor sets:
The resistors on the power tubes of vintage Fender amps take some serious abuse. They handle a lot of juice and are subject to further physical abuse from the rising heat of the power tubes. This causes them to burn & drift over time.
It is important to match the resistors on your power tubes if you want the best tone possible. This is especially important if you shell out the big bucks for matched sets of power tubes or vintage NOS matched sets. What’s the point of matched tubes if they are all being fed different operating voltages?
Greatly enhance your tone with signal capacitor upgrade kits:
If you are looking to get the most out of your silverface Fender, it’s a good idea to upgrade the coupling (signal) caps throughout the circuit. Doing this will greatly enhance the clarity, richness & sustain of your amp.
