Doubt on MK VIII SE

Post by fluidusmisticus »

Hello Everybody. I have a question: Is normal that pre-amp 12at7 tubes on mk viii se are less "bright" (much less intense brightness) when they working, than power tubes 6h30pi?

Yes, the tube brightness will be model/version dependent and does not have impact on the sound or performance. Only if the tube begins to shine a purplish color (which means it's about to go out) do you need to take action.

Thank you for the clarification.
