Mad Scientist tube experimentation set!
Many customers tell me that they have a hard time finding a wide range of quality tubes locally, so... I've decided to offer this set to those of you who are inclined to experiment and get the MOST out of their Stagebaby. This bottomless pit of tone is available to Emery Sound amp owners only. I'll compile an ongoing list of favorite tube 'recipes', so please let me know what you discover!

All tubes are play tested in amps before shipping.
