Simple thread really...

What is a high gain tube that doesn't sound like **** nor make a lot of noise that I can put in my triple x?

I need 3 preamps, 4 powers.

Also if it matters.. I'm replacing stock 12AX7 and 6L6GC's

I play blackened progressive melodic thrashy death metal.

If you're worried about noise you aren't gonna want high gain tubes. Also, the general consensus is that high gain tubes aren't gonna give your amp more distortion. JJ makes pretty good tubes all around, certainly a decent placed to start. They can be a bit dark so for a brighter tone you might go for tung sols in the preamps.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

I was looking at Electro-harmonix groove 6L6's... Any particular arguments on those? I was also looking at the Tungsols for the preamps already, so that's pretty much decided.

I dunno, never tried them. I've always used JJ power tubes and they've always been good to me, never felt the need to try something else. They're cheap too which is a plus in my book.

Hmm, okay, thanks buddy! I'll definately look into the JJs. I'm open to any other suggestions as well.
