    I read a thread from a while back where Tombowlus was recommending that the tubes in this puppy be replaced with something better. I haven't popped the top yet but I assume that the 659 has the proverbial Sovtek cheapies in it?

    I believe Tom recommended Telefunkens. Anyone else have experience with upgrading the tubes in a DB659 and how much and what kind of difference in the tone did your upgrade make?

    Thanks!!

    Actually, never mind!

    I found out through some more research that the Aggie already has GE 12ax7WA's which are $50 each as it is. Yes I could upgrade to a Mullard or Telefunken at $130 plus. :eek: I think I'm going to stand pat for a while! :)
