Replacing preamp tubes on Ampeg SVT 4-PRO
My SVT 4-PRO wears three SOVTEK 12AX7 preamp tubes.
What will change to the sound if I replace them with 12AT7 / ECC81 and what with 12AU7 / ECC82?

It will sound terrible. Both of those tubes have way lower gain than the 12AX7. You're welcome to give it a shot, though. That's how we learn.

I would stick to 12AX7. Sometimes the circuits are designed for them. I like Tung Sol RI in V1 positions in all my amps (guitar and bass) and JJ's everywhere else. On an amp with a slightly dark flavor like the SVT-4, you might like Electro Harmonix 12AX7's (which to my ears are a tiny bit brighter on the high end). A few people whose opinions I respect here like them in their Ampegs.
