Is there a better OTL tube amp out there better than the DarkVoice 336SE in the 200-$600 price range? Woo Audio WA3 or WA6 for example....Will this amp give some warm, tubey tones? Expect to change out stock tubes??
I haven't received my DV yet but I have purchased NOS tubes. I was able to find a Tungsol 1963 tube for the preamp at Tube World Express. Tubes are made under the Tungsol name in Russia and are apparently no match for the New Jersey made Tungsol's of the 60's. I was able to find 2 NOS RCAs for power. Apparently the power tube is less critical than preamp Tube. All tubes were less than $50 Each.
Nice find on the vintage valves! It will be fun to burn-in the stock tubes, get a feel for "that" sound. Then, after burn in of stock tubes n electronics, drop-in the vintage tubes and see how the sound signature changes and what tone you'll like best in your tube rolling adventures....
Have fun- it's what it's all about!!!
