i picked up a Fender Blues Jr. a couple days ago out of necessity for a master volume amp that i can play in a quiet apartment building. I chose this amp based on the sound of its preamp distortion since it was the best sounding amp in the store for this purpose.

As with all new amps everyone wants to change the stock tubes and i feel that the amp sounds just a tad bit fizzy on the top end with the gain way up for distortion.

The different tube types and how they work in different positions has always been a bit of a mystery to me, so can anyone recommend a re tube kit that will:
-Smooth out the top end?
-Offer a tad more gain?
-Bring out more harmonic content?

I play a modified Epiphone LP Jr. (PAF pickup, 50's wiring mod) and a Gibson LP 60's tribute. My style of music is progressive rock.

JJ's. Eurotube does retube kits.

Pretty much this, except I would put a Tung-Sol 12ax7 in V1 as it sounds a bit more defined. Swap it out with the JJ and pick the one you're happy with.
