New power tubes for Mark III Green Stripe. Recommendation?

Post by DaveShred86 » Tue Aug 23, 2022 7:50 am

Hi folks!

First of all thanks for watching this, well, as the title suggests, I am thinking on sending my Mark III Green Stripe head to a local tech for a proper power retube.

Any suggestions on brands/models? I actually have (and wish to remain like this) 2 EL34 + 2 6L6.

As far as I know I should avoid JJ, any other opinion?

I play high gain thrash/death metal 24/7 (no cleans etc), so lots of gain and low noise is what I'm looking for.

Enormous thanks.

By the way, I forgot to say that power tubes look very old, maybe they are the ones they put on at the factory back in the day? Amp looks very much like was made in 89.. :roll:
