One does not reach the sweet spot as early as with the Reverb-amps with an additional gain stage in the preamp section.
The Tremolux uses only one 12ax7 tube in the preamp section in both channels before the signal enters the phase inverter.
Finally we point out location of components in the physical layout diagram.
Speakers The 2×10″ closed cabinet that came with the Tremolux is practically sized and performs well on most stages.
The speaker is the most important component in your amp which physically produces the air waves that your ears detect as a tone.
See page How to select speakers for speaker recommendations.
We recommend a closed or semiclosed speaker cabinet for this setting.
You may increase volume further for cranking the amp harder.
This is because they have the same number of preamp gain stages (each stage inverts the phase with 180 degrees).
As for all amps you will be able to shape your tone significantly with selecting speakers and tubes.
You’ll need schematics to implement some of these mods in this page. We usually start with explaining a mod from a functional perspective where we relate to components in the logical schematics diagram.
If you want a cleaner and spankier tone you can replace the V1/V2 12AX7 preamp tube with 5751, 12AT7, or 12AY7.
These tubes have lower voltage gain and different frequency responses, particurlarly when distorting.
