Warmth, more gain, more crunch, less fizz.

This. It'll just sound more full, and it'll cut out some of the ice-pick you get with cheap valves.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I don't think so, maybe get the HT DIST instead of the DIST X? Just a suggestion

JJ's also will probably give it a more dark sound as well.
But to get rid of noise from your pedal, you'll need a noise gate.

JJ's are good tubes, they're the only ones I use. They're reliable and they sound great.

JJ's are a tad darker, and they handle high gain from the amp a bit better than most tubes.
