Anyone tried them? are they better than your sovteks/electro harmonix?
#2
They're alright, nothing to write home about. I currently have Sovteks and JJs in my Mark IV and like them better than the stock Mesas that come in them, but I like the Mesa tubes better than EHX. They cost too much though, not worth it imo.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

What kind of tone are you looking for and what amp?

Mesa's are rebranded.
Does anyone know what company's tubes, Mesa rebrands?

EHX/Sovtek are made by Xpo-pul(Relfektor). The lower-end Sovteks are at best, ok. EHX tubes, I find, vary. I've had some great EHX 12AX7's and poor 6L6's.

Lol at the ignorance of the general population.

Mesa Boogie amps are fixed bias, meaning that you cant rebias them AT ALL without replacing resistors etc, so, they take tubes, test them to make sure they fit within their amps fixed bias, and then sell them as rebranded Mesa Boogie tubes.

No, just a general statement, meant slightly ironically.

ah, I was told they went through a 12 or 24 hour? burn test period... they are really just making sure they can be used again??

....You do know fixed bias means they just have grounded cathodes and they are instead biased by a negative potential at the grids?
