The Russian IIs are rebranded EHs, right?


Yup.

FWIW, I just confirmed that my TA-15 has Mesa branded JJ 12AX7 in all four preamp/PI positions, and Russian output tubes, and I am very pleased with the sound.

I've found mesa pre-amp tubes are my favorite at this point, especially the spax7.

PM and Ruby's FTW!
PM 12ax7hg in preamp for tight chunky gain. Nothing like it!!
PM for power in general, rich harmonic nice smooth low middle, perfect for tone/solowork.
Ruby 6L6 in power for that fast metallic chunck. Can't stop to chugg and grind on them.
Had no luck with JJ powertubes. Unstable and bassy-bouncy in a wrong way.
A MUST TO BIAS ALL TUBES!

Tubes for Mesa gear only considered.

Anyone have a clear update on Mesa's current tube offering? In other amps, I've had great success with the new production Mullard EL-34s and would consider them for my MkIII. Futzing around with biasing my Mark has never been something I wanted to do.

I can definetly understand this from a buisness point of view but a tube failure isn't such a catastrophic thing to me as an end user who takes a solid interest in what I'm playing through. The off chance that I'll have to replace tubes is worth the 50 bucks to have better tone for the countless times they work perfectly fine.

It is what it is



I agree with you!!!
