When i had an old 5150, i had JJ 6L6c's in the power and EC833 i think in the pre amps. Whatever the high gain kit on eurotubes.com is.

 

I just bought a 6505+, and they come with Ruby tubes. I never heard fo these tubes, how are they in comparison to JJ?

 

Either way, i plan on re-tubing within the next 2 months or so. What do you guys prefer?

haha, sure its possible. But if they still sound good who cares.

Is anyone familiar with these Ruby tubes they are putting in the stock 6505 series. Im curious to how goood quality they are. Never heard of them.

The Ruby tubes are Chinese. I thought they didn't sound too bad, but they don't hold up for {censored}. I hate Chinese power tubes, but I love their preamp tubes.
A 12AT7 works nice in the phase inverter. I wouldn't use one anywhere else.
