Newbie with Tube Amps...Got the Darkvoice and works very good with chinese tubes..No Hum from Tubes. Would like to upgrade from what everyone is stating...but can anyone help me get the exact tubes needed Front and back tube? I need the link for the two tubes needed for the 336SE from ebay? Trying to keep price for both around $60 to $80 ish.
The front tube is a 6N8P; you can use a 6SN7, widely available. The re-issue Tungsol 6SN7 is a good choice; many New Old Stock (NOS) varieties also.
The rear, larger tube is a 6N5P; you can use a 6AS7G or a 6080. The Winged =C= SED 6AS7G is a good choice. Both tubes are available from Tubestore.com for under $30 ea.
Before spending more money, let the stock tubes break-in for a few hundred hours. People who say that Chinese tubes are inferior may be just trying to sell you something else!! I use Shuguang KT-88s in my Bob Latino power amp.
Much appreciate the info...ill stick with stock for awhile..and give then a try...
