Dear folks,

I thought you might find this video interesting:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR5M0Bkk66o

Here GG goes through his most recent rig (apart from the "secret" HSS guitar). Things that stood out to me:

- 6L6s in his Victory V50. Is this a new thing? I knew about 6L6s in the V100 and V30, but I wasn't aware he had these replaced. EL34s are stock for V50, unlike the previous two amps and even the Aristocrats website mentions EL34s. Needless to say, it's cool GG goes by ear and not by preconceived notions.

- a first vid—that I'm aware anyway—where GG talks about his FX8 effects unit. It's too bad he didn't go over the sounds at any length.

All in all, cool stuff!

I've been a huge 34 fan most of my life and even own a Badger 30 (el34s). I recently purchased a Victory V30 and tried 6ca7s, el34s, and 6l6s. To me the V30 sounds best with the 6l6s. The cleans are improved and the overdriven channel has a much richer sonic profile. The amp becomes more versatile which is likely why Guthrie prefers the 6l6.
