Help! Looking to upgrade the tubes straight away. A nod towards treble and bass with the tubes. Based in the UK so a local tube source here would be incredibly appreciated. Looking forward to your suggestions and help. Thank you. :)
Well, I started blind and bought the wrong tubes. You have to get a large power tube (6AS7) and a smaller pre-amp tube (6SN7). I don't live in the UK, but there are tube stores online, so I found one and called. The salesperson was very helpful and directed me to a lot of information that I found useful. You can spend a lot of money on tubes, and I expect that I probably will because the Dark Voice sounds pretty amazing. Be sure and ask about burning the tubes in, because when you first install new tubes, there will probably be a very annoying hum. This has to be burned out. Best of luck.
Thank you for your kind help. If you have any must try tubes, please let me know kind Sir! :)
