Just in! 2013 Dr. Z M12 guitar head. Cathode-biased 12W EL84 little monster w/ a NOS EF86 high-gain pentode in V1, 12AX7 in V2 and rectified by a 5AR4. Volume, Treble, and Bass keep it mean and simple. Hi/Lo input gain switch to accommodate humbuckers/single coils. Remarkably pedal-friendly! A very powerful and loud 12W, with plenty of low end for its size. 24 lbs. In pristine (MINT) condition, never gigged! $1049
Dropped some Mullard branded Siemens nos ‘70s E86C tubes in the Bustard this morning. The original RFT E86C tubes sounded fine, but it was probably just time. Some Tung-Sol 12AX7s in there now, too. Sounding forward, punchy and sweet👍 #thermionicculture#littlebustard#nostubes#santafe

The culprit! Replaced this Electro Harmonix 12BH7A with a NOS Sylvania and my beloved @retroinstrumentsinc 176 is back in form!
