I've just bought a old used Dual Rectifier Tremoverb and got it very cheap.

Hopefully I got it cheap because the tubes where old, because it´s missing some gain, so I think I have to buy some new Preamp tubes.

Thought about buying 6 x Mesa SPAX 12AX7 or 6 x Mesa 12AX7.

How big is the different between the SPAX and regular 12AX7 ??? (lower noice ??)

Sins I just bought the Amp I want to try out the amp with the sound it was ment to have from the beginning.

Maybe later I will try some Tung-Sol and JJ mix, or something else...

Any input would be helpful sins I´m a new Mesa Owner :D

I would only buy one SPAX for V1. I would buy a new set of power tubes also. All Mesa tubes.

But yes, also thought about buying 4 x Mesa Boogie 6L6 STR440 for the Power section and 2 x Mesa Boogie 5U4GB for the Rectifier section.

You can run whatever you want in v2-v6 for preamp tubes. Just remember that the cathode follower positions don't like Russian tubes and you will want to run Chinese or Slovakian tubes there.
