Noice! If you plan on tube rolling, I've done my fair share of it. Save the headache and don't do it because it's a money pit... or if you insist, grab yourself a NOS 7236 Tung Sol tube. Very close to 5998 in bass, but at like 1/3 to 1/2 of the price of one. 6SN7's are still a bit of a mystery for me. The best one I've listened to so far is a Sylvania JAN CHS VT-231.

That's beautiful and probably all you'll ever need. Surely you'll get a solid state amp at some point to see if there is a difference (did you ? is there ?), but you're at endgame #1 I love the look of the DarkVoice, meant to get it for quite a long time now but never pulled the trigger (don't own any tubes)

Yeah I ended up with a THX 789 as well. Different sounds for different moods. Darkvoice tubes also put out a lot of heat, which isn't great for summertime.
