The Fender Studio Bass amplifier uses:
There’s just one thing you have to be careful about when fitting these preamp valves as the layout is different to most other amps. When you look at the amp from the front, the order of preamp valves, from left to right is V1, V3, V2, V4, V5, V6.
It does not go in numerical order as you might expect.
This is important because it means that the normal ECC82 for the EQ that goes in V2 is actually the THIRD valve from the left.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.
Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.
