    New valves...

    I have a Blackstar HT-5 that I think is heading towards needing new valves.
    It has an ECC83 and a 12BH7, whatever the fuck they are

    Any recommendations for valves?

    ECC83 = 12AX7

    The 12BH7 is a funky radio tube IIRC.

    Do some Google searching on the 12BH7 and you should find a couple of articles describing various varieties of that tube. It's often used in HiFi preamps, so some audiophiles have done some tinkering with various brands of tubes and have written them up.

    JJ does make 12BH7s. Anyone makes 12AX7/ECC83s.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
