Whats the max gain I can expect out of an amp using 3 12ax7 pre-amp tubes and 4 EL34 tubes?

Depends on the amp, tone shaping controls, guitar, playing weight, pickups...just about everything.

Are you talking about a specific amp?

How many tubes and what type has very little to do with how much gain it will get, it's more dependant on what's inside the amp besides the tubes.

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.

It's a vintage 1983 Carvin x100b, I'd be using mostly dimarzio high output pickups and EMGs

The x100b has a lot of gain. My friend has one it's a great sounding amp, I really like it.

According to Harmony Central it has gain out the ass so you should be fine if you're using high output pups.
