So I would like to change the tube in my vox ad15vt-xl amp. As I have understood, there is only one tube, right? But the problem is, that I have never changed tubes, so I don't know which tube would fit.
After searching the net, I have concluded that the amp uses a single 12AX7 tube in the power amp, but is it all the same, which tube brand and model I choose.
p.s. What is the difference between 12AX7 and ECC83. Thnx!

1. Nope, different brands all sound different in certain ways. Check out the "All You Need to Know About Tubes!" sticky.

2. 12AX7 and ECC83 are the same kind of tube, just different names.

Honestly, it wouldn't make much of a difference in your amp because it uses just one preamp tube and it is hybrid.

Edit: Here's the thread I was talking about!

Yup, pretty much this.
