See, I think the secret of vintage tube amp tone lies in the mains cable! I just swapped the cord on an Epiphone Valve Junior with a Black Rhodium Fusion and the difference is DRAMATIC:
- sound is overall more focused and Hi-Fi
- warm, haunting mids
- fragile harmonics survive better
Are you going to try my SUGGESTION? Would it help if I show you a hundred people who believe in the tonal impact of mains cables?
Welp, you've convinced me. Sound quality is all in the brain. Gonna sell all my gear and get a 15 watt Gorilla amp and just decide it sounds better. It's so simple, I don't know why I didn't think of this years ago!

Google "speaker cable burn in" if you want to see crazy :D
I remember HiFi people saying they could hear the improvement in sound quality when a line filter was placed on the mains side.
