    Recommended tubes for the B-52?

    Being the B-52 my first (and I guess it will last some years) go into tubes world, I'm just curious about the possibility of improving its already impressive sound. Considering my source, my cans (see my signature), and my preference for great symphonic works, are there some recommendations...

Does someone know these batteries? What I...

    I recently purchased a Total Airhead from Headroom...then, hearing that from December there will be a new model, I sent it back to upgrade to the new 2003 Total Airhead. Yesterday I read some informations about the Porta Corda 2, but couldn't find any detailed reviews and most of all any...
