in addition, if any of the guys familiar with any of the specific tubes mentioned want to offer their opinion, (different point of view)
we could get as much info as possible, merge them into the post and ask to add the finished post into the amp sticky.


edit: the nice thing about having info like this in the sticky, is that it's there to quote, when someone askes. (most new guys dont check stickies before starting a thread.)

i still quote stuff from the EG sticky from time to time. it saves me the trouble of saving / finding things on my own computer, or having to rewrite the same thing over and over.

^ yes, that's kind of what I was trying to do with the pickup thread I was kind of trying to make a while ago. Then I got lazy.

I'm in the process of doing a "how do you try out amps" threads, though. maybe I'll get back to those other ones later....

^ i still have it, far as I know.

but it'll be a while- you kind of have to do everything in order or the whole sticky looks crap.

great thread. and whoever asks, rebranding is literally taking the original paint off of it and putting theirs on.

^Yes.
And to tubab0y- they don't take off the original printing, they get them wholesale from the manufacturer without anything on them in the first place. But yes, that's the idea.

There is also quite a lot of info about tubes on this page:

http://www.tubefreak.com/tubesadvice.htm

E.g.

Quote:
Let us first get one thing straight. There are only a few factories in the world that produce preamp tubes:
* Sovtek in Russia
* Svetlana in Russia
* JJ in the Czech Rep.
* Ei in Yugoslavia
* Sino in China

These guides are hard because these tubes will sound different in different kinds of amps.
If it were possible, i think sound clips of the tubes along with a list of the gear used would be awesome, but hard. The sound clips would have to be of high quality (like musiciansfriend) because home recording on a comp speaker will destroy the tone

If someone wants to send me an SM57, an Edirol, and a copy of ProTools I'm all over that.

It's meant to be a guide, that's all. I can't account for every amp type, this is just how they sound to me. For reference, the amps I used to test these tubes were:
Fender Hot Rod 4x10
Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue
Marshall JCM800
THD Univalve
Vox AC30CC2x

It would be insanely annoying to keep chaning tubes though

^Marshall tubes are rebranded Sovteks. 90% of the tubes Sovtek makes go right to Marshall.
