im making some mods on my vk 112, i have just ordered a new speaker (the govner, eminence) and was wondering what tubes people can recomend to me..any suggestions guys?

JJ, Mullard, electro-harmonix.

Just make sure the power tubes are matched.
And have them biased after you put them in.

I'm a huge fan of the EHX tubes. Stay away from Groove Tubes! Imo...

Groove Tubes are just OEM tubes used by a bunch of companies. I believe Fender makes them IIRC, could be wrong.

EHX are ok, I really love JJ tubes. It's a lot of personal preference.

groove tubes is a few different makes.

I know some of them are JJ's , I just don't know the model off the top of my head. Either way, they're more expensive than just JJ brand (they are the exact same tube, as well)

I'd recommend JJ's as well. It took the harshness out of my amp and really opened it up.

jjs?? is that the manufacturer or model?? so i can have a look at them

JJ is the manufacturer, you need to match the tube type to the ones already in your amp, and get them from somewhere that test them, a lot of the newly manufactured tubes can be dodgy
