I picked up a Peavey XXX and the current tubes are fine, but if I changed the preamp tubes would I be able to get more gain?

It takes four 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes.

Also, which Sovtek tubes are better, 6L6WXT+ or 5881's?

Sovteks are a bit, well... rubbish, you might want to look at other brands. JJ make very nice power tubes.

High gain preamp valves won't necessarily add gain but your amp will handle higher gain levels better.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

What do you think of the JJ E34L tubes?


I actually have those very tubes in my Laney, and I really like them. Very fat and full sounding, more british in voicing than 6L6s or 5881s, but with a bit more bottom end than EL34s.
