Anyone ever try mixing in EL34L's with EL34's?

I'm going to retube my 210H soon and I have a quad of EL34's but I also havea pair of EL34L's
anyone ever try mixing these together or is this a bad idea? both on one side ? one on each side?
or don't do it?
thanks
Nick

Re: Celestion Creamback Initial Review...

I have an early JCM800 2X12 cab I bought second hand that had early GT-75's in it (screens in the middle of the center of the magnets) I swapped one our for a G12M-65 cream back today, and even out of the box new, I'm getting more of what this cab was missing. The Creamback new(at least) is a lot da...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

thank you captain obvious, that's what I was using, the JSJVM Orange mode, [smilie-eyeroll] but I've gone back to just using my JVM without the Axe at all anyway. With an MXR 10 band in the loop I'm getting the best sounds I've ever gotten out of this thing. I'm probably switching over to a FriedMan...

Re: Debating on selling 410H Full Stack

I'm thinking of doing the same but getting the JCM 800 studio.
My 210H is getting to be a pain to lug around and I have to open it up to get it to sound how I like it.
I do wear plugs , the rest of my band is not appreciative of my "levels" during rehearsals though LOL!

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

have had several rehearsals now and I've tried both of my cabs.
Back to using my JVM with the Axe FX in 4CM mode so I can take advantage of all of my effects.
Maybe using FOH at some gigs will make me revert back but in rehearsals the band overwhelmingly
likes the JVM over the Axe FX modeling.

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I have and it sounds great , but I hate the thought of lugging everything around, one positive would be I get to use both cabs. I may try that tomorrow at rehearsal.

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

well I've used my JVM at 2 rehearsals now, one with the mesa cab and one with my early JCM800 2X12. I have the negative feedback mod on mine (with a pot ) and against the Axe FX it was no contest. The JVM takes up so much more sonic room it's not even funny. I set my NFB pot at about noon (8:00 is s...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I don't use any cab sims I dialed in these specific patches I use with the band straight through the Powestage into the cab. I don't like FRFR, I just don't gel with it.
I'm going to use my Mesa cab again tomorrow night with my JVM head and see if we can hear a difference.

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I have both a JVM 210H modded with the neg feedback mod, gain reduction and mid shift. I love it, OD1 Orange is where I live on this thing. I also have an Axe FX II , last night they sent out a firmware update that is part of what the Axe III uses. I've been going back and forth all morning between ...

Re: Unloaded my HJS

would love to hear some clips!
I was joensing for a JS for quite a while but after I modded my 210H I decided
I don't need to spend the money. the 210H pretty much nails what I was after in the first place.
