Their pre amp tubes are great, don't know a lot about their power tubes. You should read thru, then ask in the Everything/Tube sticky.

I've had experience with all of there stuff fixing amps and whatnot, IMO they are the best tubes on the market (except for cryotubes which are really really expensive)

tung-sol 12ax7s are top notch.

They'll be fine, it's really more the amp than the tubes, and in the case of high gain stuff even then the preamp tubes are more important.
