    take a kern 777 or a demeter 201 or an art tubechannel or swr iod....etc. If you put the exact same tubes in each of them, will they sound the same? Does the circuitry outside the tube affect the sound of a tube preamp much if eq is set flat?
     
  2. No. A tube a strict voltage amplifier. The "tone" from any particular tube comes from the relationship it has with the rest of circuit.
