    Recently went to a Hartke LH1000 head.

    LOVE it...

    Just wondering if anyone has tried a different preamp tube to change it's tone.

    What tube did you use, what we're the results?

    I like it's sound now, but you know, the grass might be greener if.......

    Don't expect any real difference with that design unless someone replaced a bad tube.

    +1 I'm all for tube rolling but with a single 12AX7 the differences will be subtle I changed the preamp tube in my Mesa M3 Carbine to a TUNG-SOL JTL 12AX7 I was able to hear a difference but it was slight.
