      Hi. I’m upgrading tubes in my ’65 Princeton Reverb Reissue. It’s layout is: V-1 12AX7, V-2 12AT7, V-3 12AX7 & V-4 12AX7.

      I’m using this for recording only, not gigging. I’d like to sweeten the overdrive and lower the volume.

      Should I go with V-1 12AT7, V-2 12AU7, V-3 12AT7 & V-4 12AT7. I also plan to replace the two Power Tubes and I’m not sure abut the Rectifier.

      Does this look good to you? Any suggestions?

      Hi, I have a ’65 Princeton Reverb reissue with CR 325524 on the chassis back. Can you date this amp for me?

      Seger also began to drastically reduce his recording and touring schedules — he only released one
      other album, 1986’s Like a Rock, during the ’80s. In 1994, Newt Gingrich lead the Republican Revolution, and voters elected fiscal conservatives into Congress, taking control of both the House and the Senate for the first
      time in many years. But most people over consume and take soy
