Im going to order a whole new set of tubes for my valveking 112. I have In my cart JJ 6l6gc's jjecc83s 12ax7 tungsol new production 12ax7 and a JJ ecc803. Most valvekings come with ehx pre amp tubes but mine came with jj's that I love very dearly. Some people say JJ's are dark and muddy and tung sols are bright and trebly. But I don't have much mud now should I run all JJ or will the tung Sol provide a good balance?
My main axe is made from the crucifix, strung with barbed wire, and tuned to z standard then i use a boss metal zone, gain 10, into a line 6, bass 10, mid 0, treble 10, this is the only way to be truly brootal

Try both in V1, no harm in ordering a mix. If you don't like the tung-sol you can put it in one of the other positions where it matters a lot less.

Don't put ECC803's in a combo

They're prone to microphonics.

Aren't those the same as a 12at7? I have one in my Electar and it seems like it makes it less noisy. I guess I've been...lucky (lol)

No, they have a gain of about 95. Much closer to a 12AX7. They're basically a low noise 12AX7. Great in heads, normally unusable in a combo.

You can get lucky. If it has a hard enough vacuum, you'll be fine.
