I just know that in the end, there would be a family of different but great sounding combinations, along with smaller groups of super achievers and loosers.  I can't wait!  



I can't wait to hear about your fun!

I think you could have sets that will be mediocre or even bad to you, but once you recognize the more obvious values of the tubes you have, you can intuitively mix and match to bring out the best of the group by balancing characters, and then fine-tune it to pull the bigtime beauty!

I think it is all individual...but what I am pointing to is the fun of organic exploration and the possibility of having ever evolving really good tube sets that play it all well. I can also imagine having one or more distinct sets, but this would not be my style. I doubt I have ever arrived at exactly the same set in there as I have had before, but I always have a totally amazing and exciting sound that plays well with all I listen to. This is what I meant by endless variations....not of distinct tube sets, but of an ever evolving and changing single set.

I personally can't imagine changing sets for specific recording qualities or music types....I like to play the field of my music without restriction and at will. But this is me...distinct sets could be a totally valid approach.

It will be really cool figuring out what makes you happy!

Have fun!

Will

I understand, Will.  Its quite clear.  Let's see how it works for me.  I know I'm very excited about this little project, as it promises bringing potentially many surprises and adventures to an already amazing sounding rig (and I don't even have to solder anything!   Smiley )
