Lonestar Special Tubes

Post by motoputz » Sun May 10, 2015 11:41 am

just got a l.s.s. and want to put new tubes into it, save the old for spares.
any recommendations that you've tried and found successful? i see the 5y3 and the el84's, i don't see what the pre-amp tubes are though? what does m.b. use for the pre-amp tubes?

Those are 12AX7's. Are you sure you want to change tubes? Some older tubes provide the sag that may be the tone you like about the amp. You can always change them out and put the old tubes back if you wish. Be sure to use matched sets on the El84's.
