Fortin NATAS tubes?
Does anybody know what kind of tubes the Fortin NATAS uses to get the insane amounts of gain it has? I'm wanting to find out and put the same tubes in a ValveKing 100 head and see if I might get a similar tone.

looks like ordinary tubes...just plenty of them

Well yea haha I mean like brand and model though. I might just put the Mesa/Boogie tubes on Guitar Center in it to get that awesome Mesa tone.

Um yeah... Well consider that Mesa does not make tubes, their tubes are just rebranded Sovtek, JJ, and Chinese 12AX7s,

Yes they do. They're $40 a pair. Look them up on Guitar Center.

Mesa simply puts their name on the tubes, they don't manufacture them.

Enzo 29th March 2013 10:19 PM

Exactly. Mesa SELLS tubes with their name on them, but they don't make them. The tubes they sell are the exact same tubes you can buy from any tube seller. If you wanted to, you could have the tube makers put your name on tubes and sell them.

Tube Amp Doctor in Germany seems to be a good source, and lists lots of different tubes, with info about the 'small' differences, and who uses them etc
