RE: Tube dampers etc.

I only use 1 pair of 6AS7s per M60 and I have Herbies dampers on them and they do have a positive effect.

Prior to using only a pair of 6AS7 tubes per amp, I spoke with Steve regarding dampers on power tubes.

He replied that damping 1/2 of the tubes will more than likely get you 90% of the gain you may achieve by damping all of the tubes.

FYI, I find that damping the CCS 6SN7 with 3 of Herbies Guitar dampers yields a nice result!

I will also ad that placing 4 Still Points Ultra SS under each amp will really surprise you!
