So I've noticed my remedy has lost a lot of top end/highs recently. Nothing has really changed in my set up. I've changed some overdrives out but noticed it before then. I'm running a 2x12 with a v30 and G12h30 and have been for years. I am now running the tone controls as Bass 9-10 mid -11-12 and the high is dimed. MV close to dimed and bring up the high volume to taste, no bass volume. This is with a tele no less. It just seems as if the crispness is not there as it was before.
I've changed the power tubes with a matched set of JJs and although it sounds better than before just didn't really help the problem. Could a change in preamp tubes help or is there maybe something else going on? I know it would be a cheap try but just curious if anyone else had seen this on their remedy.

YES...absolutely. Try changing the preamp tubes.
You might want to take the tubes that are in there...and wiggle them around a bit. They could have oxidized a bit and not letting the full signal through. Better yet, take them out and put them back in. If that doesn't work, try new tubes. Or used tubes that you know to be good.
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

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!
