Re: Bassman Rectifier tubes

Hi Ryan,

I think Fender quotes 55W for the SS, 50W for the GZ34 & 45W for the 5U4. All 
this is irrelevant however as I'd be surprised if your amp makes half the 
wattages listed with a Hi-Z mic plugged in! The RI runs significantly higher 
voltages than an original and therefore will sound rather different with the 
same tube rectifier. I have found 5U4 gives a larger "sweet spot" before 
feedback than the other two. A GZ34/5AR gives a nice brassy honk but makes 
the amp more lively with regard to feedback, might not be too much of a 
problem if you can get far enough away from the amp.

Regards, Mark.
