    Manufacturers are always using different tubes as time goes on, either for tonal changes, availability of tubes, or because something better comes along. So it depends on what year you're talking about.

    I can only say with certainty that 98-99 ABM heads came with Sovtek 12Ax7WXT+, and 2000 and later ABMs came with Sovtek ECC83. Don't know what they are using nowadays - probably still Sovteks.
