So I picked up a very nice used RX Jr head recently. I ordered a matching 1x12 cab and installed a WGS Et-65. I used the amp at band practice the other day. My fellow other guitar player plays a RX Es with a 2-12 Greenbacks. His sound was just superior to mine. We did some ab ing of our rigs switching the cabs heads etc.... He just had his head retubed too. It wasn't so much the cab, but more the head. My cab really sounded pretty good with his head too. So here our my options: Sell the Rx Jr head and get a used Zwreck head? Retube my Rx Jr because i have no idea about the tube life and that may help a lot? I've checked into tubes and that's going to run me about $200.00 Looking at Tangram El 84's, Tesla Ef86 and Mullard reissue 12 Ax7s. Probably won't change rectifier tube. Any thoughts? I know I won't ever get the head room he has but it just seemed like there should not be that much difference in those two heads in my opinion. I really have liked the you tube videos on the Zwreck head.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
