Thanks for your input. I don't know much about tubes and I will have to do a lot of reading. I don't necessarily think that my tubes are lacking anything, more so I would just like to try other tubes for experimentation sake.
Can anyone tell me the difference between one tube and another? I'm not sure what sets tubes apart from one another. What makes one better then the other? Or is it just specific qualities people are looking for that make one tube different from the other but not necessarily better. I'm guessing quality of craftmanship and materials has something to do with it?
