Nice tube dude!! It would be a toss up for me whether to put it in V1 or V2. The RCA has a great over-driven sound, the Amperex has more high and Mid frequencies.

Usually there's a difference between 12ax7's and 12ax7a's. 12ax7a's being short-plates.

Mesa and Jan Philips 5U4GB difference?

Hey,

I have a Road king II and I was wondering if there would be a tonal difference between Mesa's 5U4GB and Jan Phillips 5U4GB Rectifier Tubes?
