I like them both, in different positions.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Im putting them in my crate v33 head. i really like the clean sound this amp has. if it sounds this good with really sh**ty tubes it has now, wait until it has good ones. i know alot of you guys are saying "why the heck is he spending that much money on a turd?" well im a believer in things dont need a brand name if they get the job done for you.

Allright so im gonna get the jj/tesla el84's but i cant decide what 12ax7's to get. i want a smoother tone that will compliment my tube screamers nicely. any recommendations???

Tungsols are known for their brightness and clarity, as well as their great resistance to microphonics.

I just haven't heard much criticism about them at all...that said, if you want smoothness, maybe you should try a different brand first (Groove Tubes)?
