I'm giving my Crate v18-112 some upgrades and I was wondering what tubes to give it. Right now the OD'd tone is a little too bright and kind of buzzy. What should I go with to give it a warm, smooth, crunchy sound? I've read the sticky about tubes, but I still need some advice.

I'm also going to upgrade the stock speaker to a GSW Veteran 30.

I would try JJ's. Buy a few of them and try them in different positions... of even just one and pop it in the gain position of your preamp. Maybe the new Mullards or Tung Sols as well.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.
