The Mesa Nomad 55 amplifier uses 4 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves, 1 x Balanced ECC83 for the phase splitter position (V5) and 2 x 6L6GC matched power valves/power tubes.
Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding better than ever.
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.

The reason we don’t sell Mesa tubes is that Mesa doesn’t make amplifier tubes. They simply buy them from the main five manufacturers, of which JJ is one, and then rebrand them. We think they are overpriced.
However, what Mesa do promise is their valves are perfectly matched and biased so you don’t have to rebias the amp. That’s great – and we guarantee that too, but without the hefty markup because we buy directly from the valve manufacturer.
About this amp:
The Nomad is a very high-quality 55-watt amp offering three channels with six different modes. Each of the channels has two separate modes for each hence the six modes.
You have a clean channel, a crunch channel, and a full overdrive channel. Each channel is extremely usable, as is usually the case with these superb Mesa amps. It also comes with spring reverb and a solo boost for soloing.
