Thanks Doc; After I bought them, I realized I should have ran it by "the gang" to make sure they were OK to use. Planned on returning them if it was a bad idea. I'll post a follow up on this thread based on what I hear playing through 2 different cabs, single & hum. guitars (in my basement where I can crank it up).

I just received my new to me 2013 maz18nr. Strat & Les paul through hi & lo input, 2 different 1x12 closed cabs 1 bigger, 1 smaller. Both had et-65's. First impression was "hard", no squish, no maz 3d sparkle. Pulled all tubes, deoxit, & replaced w/ used jj preamp that were my used stash, the new 6p14p-k power tubes, & a new gt 5y3 rectifier that was stash. Results; Holy kielbasa!! What a sound. Lush, that maz 3d sparkle, warm, full. Just beautiful. Takeway; Not sure if it's those new 6p14p-k tubes, the new 5y3 rectifier, or the combination of both.

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!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
