    We are assuming that all tubes are ok and not on their last legs?!

    DSL's can get a bit fizzy but a good combo of tubes can make the difference.



    v1-Sovtek lps -nice full range

    v2-Marshall vlve- get that marshall crunch

    v3-GT 7025-also full range gain

    v4-Ruby 12ax7- nice tone if its a red one



    I dont care for tungsols in DSL's ( makes them even more fizzy).

            Pretty much this. I don't have a huge stash of tubes laying around, but I have a few. Every time I've done a comparison, I can't tell the damn difference.
            Rig:
            Ibanez S2170FB
            Soldano X88R Clone Preamp
            TC Electronic G-Major 2
            50W EL34 Rack Power Amp
            Lopo 2x12 Cab.

            Stuff I've built:
            5W tube amp (1 12AX7/1 EL84)
            Ruby Cigar Box Amp
            X88R Clone
            50 Rack Power Amp

              I have tungsols in my DSL50. I love them in my 2203, but i need to put darker tubes in the DSL.

                stick to the 12ax7/ecc83's. don't put the 12at7 or ecc82's in there. why don't you just try different combinations out and see for yourself what you like?



                Also, I've noticed a HUGE interplay between tubes and speakers. It's a phenomena that never ceases to trip me out... but it's more prevalent with different power tubes and speakers. I usually prefer 6L6's in my GH50L but I recently got celestion CL80 clones and on a whim i put KT77's in it and was very pleasantly surprised. I've tried KT77's in that amp with like 4 other pairs of speakers and hated them. Tripped me out that they sound REALLY good now.

                  I have mullard and marshall preamp tubes running now. I also dont like EHX tubes in it. There are some amps (like a Carvin Legacy) that the EHX and Tungsols tubes bring to life tho.
