MPX-3 SLAM Tubes and Texture Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
1) What tubes actually ship standard with the MPX-3 SLAM upgrade?

2) How do people feel about the Texture Control on the MPX-3?

Thanks in advance.

1) That depends on what he has in stock. The options usually include Tung Sol, Raytheon, Sylvania, GE and RCA. I prefer Tung Sol D getter 5687's, Sylvania 5687wa or the Raytheon 5687 rectangular getter myself.

2) I have the texture control on my SLAM PPX3 and a slight bit of feedback can tighten the bass some. I definitely do use the texture control. I particularly like the controls effect on some poorly recorded material .... the control cleans up the presentation some. But I use the amount of feedback afforded by the texture control sparingly. Unfortunately, I have never added a texture control on any of my MPX3's .... so I cant give you a direct answer.
