What can be recommended for power tube replacement, other than JJ's? I've had 3 sets of JJ's and I've had my amp less than a year, the first one arrived, and the tubes were fucked, the second set had 1 bad tube and blew a fuse, and now my tubes are crackling really bad. It's been doing it for awhile, and hasn't blown, but I really should get on retubing it now that I'm in a band and going to practice and shit, don't want to have my amp on all day and blow something important.
I know I probably just have really bad luck, but I figure it can't hurt to try something other than JJ's. I like a bright, really middy sound, lots of attack. What say you, fellow mg.org peoples?
I've done well with Groove Tubes E34L's in the past - they're a slightly higher power, slightlydeeper, but still compatable variant.
