It does have a 12AX7 but keeps the gain to low medium territory with some grit. I picked it up for $120 and it is on par with the Blackbird and Beekeeper - it has a grittier more old school (slightly noisy) thing going on but it actually is a plus for the Jerry thing. I gotta have my tubes!!!wpmartin1979 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 08, 2021 2:07 pm I just got one of these and it is absolutely killing it for Jerry tone.I had a B.K. Butler Real Tube unit for decades. At one point, I replaced the stock 12AX7 with a 12AU7 and it entered Blue Tube territory. I sold it after acquiring my Fulltone Fulldrive 2.
BK Butler was WAY ahead of the game in the 80s/90s - a genius really
