What kind of tubes you guys jammin with? I’m about to upgrade all my tubes in my B-52 AT-100. I was looking at some kits. One uses JJ 5881s and ECC81 preamp tubes. Another I seen had Sovtek 6L6WXT+ with 12AX7WAs and a EH 12AT7 for the first valve. I’m thinking either option will make my cab scream but I wanted to see if anyone hear had anything good or bad to say about them.


I generally like jj's for preamp tubes and sovtek for power tubes. To me they work best in my delta blues amp. These have been super reliable for me. Mullards are also good; especially if you can source NOS ones
