    I need to retube my early 70's SVT. I was settled on Svetlana but I recently read an article at watfordvalves.com about the GE gives much better midrange growl and the Svetlana lacks this. They claim the Sovtek comes closer (in the midrange) than the Svet 6550.

    Is the Svet that far off from the "classic" SVT tone??

    Interesting, thanks Psycho.

    I may have to research those Rubys.
