    Ok plain and simple...
    I have an older SVP-PRO, i have 4 slots for 12AX7's and 1 for 12AU7...
    Should i use 5751's and 5814's or 12AX7's and 12AU7's...
    Either way, best tube brands...

    I've never used an SVT-Pro and found them 'hissy' whenever I tried them at a store... but you should use the type it calls for IMHO.

    once again, for your gear I cannot say, nor is there a cut/dry "best" preamp tube brand out there. I have some old JAN and some new Electro Harmonix and a new JJ... If I ever need more, I'll buy more of the Electro Harmonix.

    you are welcome...
