    Hey dude, job done...man that made a difference! The hum it used to exude is totally gone...and wow, more power... The preamp seems to be far more responsive... made the amp nice and thick... WAY more low frequencies...the preamp control is almost now like a bass control. Crank it past two...and the bass gets very strong...gotta cut it back on the dial...but you can get a perfect mix between gain, punch, and low end frequency. This amp sounds awesome now..wow...

    Why did you need a new tube socket? (Oops, just saw your other thread)

    BTW, Val signed off on my 2204.
