similar results as the 5U4GB.If you're just renting it for one gig,I would 
think any tube substitution for the SS will help you out,and you may want to 
bring along a couple lower gain preamp tubes as well.That should do ya for 
the one gig.Just don't forget to take them back out before you bring it 
back!. Good luck......Dave
