    I like to put my MP before my amp to get some warmth and fatness with upright and electric, but I've just been using the stock tube and am sure I could do much better. Anybody have any good suggestions?

    Thanks.

  3. Do a search in the amp forum for 12ax7 or 5751 and you'll find lots of info and links to follow. Remember, only your ears can tell you what the magic tube is for your rig.

    Or you can just email the following dealers and ask what they recommend, both have good reputations. BTW, it's a good idea to buy from a dealer that tests the tubes before sale rather than Guitar Center, etc.
