Do the JJ High Gain 12ax7's have noticeably higher gain than the standard jj 12ax7's?

I just retubed my Peavey XXX Super 40 with the high gain retube kit from Eurotubes (2-6L6GC's and 4-ECC83's). I'm not sure it increased the gain, but it sounds a ton better with the JJ tubes. The gain is a bit more usable, some of the fizziness is gone, and notes are more pronounced and tighter. I'd recommend them. It probably won't turn a lower gain amp into a beast though.

I don't believe they're actually supposed to give you more gain per say, they're just optimized for high gain amps. I could be wrong though, I was once before.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

Most of the time a tube that is labeled "high gain" has lower noise and more available headroom. It's not necessarily an indicator of how much distortion you will be able to obtain, but odds are good that it will sound better.

Also look at the Tung-Sol ECC803S if you're looking for "high gain" tubes.

No wonder I've heard they sounded better for cleans too.
