I've heard good things about those tubes from other people, although I've never played an amp with one myself.

By the way, your band was great at the show last night... I'm from Southington and I went to see Elotheos.

EDIT: I should have said this before... but OMG a fellow S-towner! Hah I thought I'd never see one of us on UG.

yeah my 5150 need tubes also. ive read into it a little bit actually. i guess sometimes the tubes will blow within 2 hours or something like that sometimes. i need some to because one of mine is blown. and ive read not to get chinese ones. and some are different so your bias needs to bet set and the 5150 needs a bias setting thing. jeez i have no idea at all. so if you get those let me know how they are!
