Re: Pignose 60 watt tube amp, green bullet

What M.N. said is true, for sure.  My opinion...if by "Russian-made" they 
mean Electro-Harmonix, then yes the 12ax7 does have an edgy sound BUT for 
most harp applications in a guitar amp, you'll want to use 12ay7 or 12au7 
preamp tubes for lower gain....Unless you like the high-pitched electronic 
screaming sounds.
