So I got me a '73 Super Lead 100 that I want to retube. This is my first Marshall amp, and first 100 watt head, so I was wondering if anyone has some good suggestions. (Aside from the obvious NOS Mullards... assume modern power tubes - I could swing NOS preamp tubes, though).

I currently have a matched quad of modern Tung-Sol (New Sensor) EL34's. Good? Bad?

I hear good things about the JJ's. True?

What tube would be best for the notorious V2 spot?

How about V1 and V3?

I realize that the answers are very subjective according to taste, but any opinions would be hugely helpful in making a decision.

Thanks!

I personally love my High Gain JJ EL84s, but I've got them in a mid-gain amp.
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

i'd go with the jj's for that high gain marshall tone. and for preamp some electro harmonix tubes should do u good
