Hey guys, after I get my new Schroeder 410 in a while, I'll have a spare few hundred dollars (AU$). The one thing that i've found I don't like alot about the V8, is the drive stage (II). It's very bright sounding, whilst it unique and still sounds good, i'm after a bit of a smoother sounding overdrive on that channel. Now, theres one 12AX7LP (All of mine are Russian Sovteks) for the first gain stage/channel, then there are two more added in for the second stage, as I understand it anyway (Any V8 owners want to correct?). What I want to do is swap the tubes responsible for the overdrive channel (So I suppose, the two that are added in when you change onto it). So what are some nice smooth sounding 12AX7/ECC83's that will overdrive with a nice sweet smooth and fat sound? I would even go to the extent of getting Mullards (only two) if need be, and I had enough $$. So i'm pretty much open for anything. It's just changing from the first channel to the second in a band setting can get some harsh/too bright overdrive/distortion sounds as I don't have channel two set very bass/deep oriented (I find I can smooth out channel II a bit with the deep switch and cutting some treble). So hit me with suggestions!
