I'm looking into switching out the 6L6's on my knucklehead reverb.
I like EL34's, but I'm also searching for a tube that will give some
extra low end and low mids punch, I also want to get rid of the rivera's
harsh\brittle highs and buzz.
I talked to eurotubes and talked to doug'stubes and they both
gave me completely different recommendations:
a matched set of the JJ E34L's and five of the JJ ECC83S preamp tubes.
Same thing but with kt77's.
RUBY EL34BSTR's and for the 5 x 12AX7's do a Tung-
> Sol in V1,
> Ruby HG+ in V2, a regular Ruby AC5 select($11.50) in V3, and
> Sovtek LPS in
> V4 and V5.
Samples of the tome I'm aiming for:

I'd go with Doug's recommendation. I like Eurotubes for their biasing videos and stuff, but the dude ONLY pushes JJ's. I will never use another JJ tube in any of my gear since they just aren't reliable enough for me.
I don't know if JJ pays him to push those tubes or what. Other than that, I really like the website. I just wished the dude offered something else besides JJ's.
