How are these tubes? Good for High Gain?

JJ's are a great choice. I had my Legacy loaded with JJ's in September. Be aware of the tube rating. 1-3 is generally for lower gain, 4-7 medium gain, and 8-10 are your higher gain tubes. Most stores carry 1-7, they're the most commonly used.

I had my 5150 fully retubed with the hi-gain set, really made it sound a lot better. JJs are great sounding tubes. I currently have mostly JJs in the preamp of my Mark IV, but I still prefer Tung-Sol preamps over them, which is what I intend to try next in the Mark IV.

I've got those exact preamp tubes and the EL34's rated at 5.5. in my Legacy. Sounds great to me.

Well when I get my VK, im putting a Tung Sol in V1, but for V2 and 3 Im stuck between the JJ 12AX7 that I posted and the EHX 12AX7. Im sort of leaning towards the EHX because it seems to be a duller version of the Tung Sol.

I honestly really don't like EHX tubes at all, they've never really wowed me. Tung-Sol and JJ are always my top choices, though I actually quite like the sound I get out of the Sovteks in my Mark IV oddly enough.

Where might I ask do you find the rating of a tube? 1-8?


The rating should be right on the box.

In that case, you're not going to have much luck finding out. The tech I get tubes from writes or puts a sticker on the box with the rating. Some retailers write the rating on the box. If you got them direct you should have had the option of choosing a rating.

Svetlana 12AX7.

Any opinions on this tube?

Extremely noob question,

A matched pair includes 2 tubes right?

Just making sure its not some weird tube terminology or something.
