What Kind of Tubes Do My Amps Use?

I have four tube amps. The 16 year old version of me would shit himself with envy if he knew that.

With the possible tube amp shortage coming I wanted to write down the types of tubes those four amps use. Here’s the list, after a quick Google search:

  • Fender Deluxe Reverb
    • Two 6v6 in the power section
    • Four 12AX7 in the preamp and the tremolo
    • Two 12AT7 for the reverb and the phase inverter
    • One 5AR4 for the rectifier
  • Fender Bassbreaker 18/30
    • One 12AX7 in the preamp
    • Four EL84 in the power section
    • One ECC83 in the phrase inverter
  • Fender Bassbreaker 15
    • Three 12AX7 in the preamp
    • Two EL84 in the power section
  • Vox AC15
    • Three 12AX7 in the preamp
    • Two EL84 in the power section
  • Vox MV50
    • One NuTube in the preamp

NuTubes… the future might be bright for those cute little buggers.
