    Hi all,

    I have an SVT-AV all-tube ampeg heads...

    I changed the preamp tubes with the GT "mullard" reissue for the 12AX7 and the GT 12AU7-Y for the stock 12AU7...

    They give to me a beatiful sound for my ears, but it's too much soft, warm and velvety...

    Which preamp tubes will give me the more traditional Ampeg sound?

    I thinked on:

    -SED/WINGED C
    -JJ/TESLA
    -EH

    Which are better?


    Thanks

    I am intersted in this stuff too. Is there any reason why you arent considering GrooveTubes?

    Perhaps it's because they take tubes like Sovtek & various chinese junk tubes, and relabel them and sell them for a huge profit?!? :eyebrow:
