I was playing around with tubes today and came across a 6072A a friend gave me a while ago. It's a jan 12AY7. Decided to try it in my Mini Z and wow. It gave me more headroom. With the guitar volume down and the amp volume at 1 o-clock it approached real cleans and turning the guitar volume up it still had more than enough dirty. The low end was bigger and tighter and the distortion smoother with more compression. It's a keeper.

I swapped out the ax for an ay last night and was amazed by the difference. I was getting crunchy breakup at 9, now I don't see it till 3. I'm gonna hold onto the ax bc there is something awesome about wailing away on the mini with all that hair on the tone, but for practicing with the band in the basement, the ay makes it managable on tunes that require clean headroom.

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
