Eden WT-400: replacement tube and self-servicing

    Hi Everyone

    What would you recommend for a replacement 12ax7 or 7025 for my Eden WT-400?

    The original died, and I've only got another tube that's about 15 years old to replace it, so I should probably go get a new one. Since it's a hybrid design, I'm assuming there's no point in NOS or fancy options but I'd appreciate suggestions.

    Also, while I have the top off, are there any parts I should be cleaning out, lubricating or spraying out? I'm not particularly handy but it wasn't a lot of trouble to remove the lid and switch out the tube. . . .

    Thank you.

    I put a 7025 in mine, it's sounds great to me, but I'm not too fussy, I find my fingers make much more difference in sound to me than my tubes.
    Unless you have a problem, I wouldn't do anything but vacuum the dust out of it while you have it open.
  3. I did a bunch of tube rolling in my WT-400 and the differences were subtle but still there. I found the cheap Chinese tubes sounded best to me. I ran through 3 or 4 different designed Chinese ones. The only tube I didn't like was the Electro Harmonix. I also tried a JJ and a NOS Mullard. They all sounded pretty good but the Chinese ones were cheaper and had the most "accurate" sound to me.
