Well not really new. NOS. I bought some NOS tubes for a different amp, and although I thought it was an improvement.... I ended up trying some different ones and liked it better. So I thought why not try them in the JAZ. I did. I'm happy.
I put an RFT in V1, a JAN 12AX7WA in V2 and a balanced JAN in the phase inverter. I'm actually susprised by the difference. It really made an improvement. Who woulda thunk it. This amp just keeps getting better and better. Without throwing out the guitarplayers cliche of adjectives..... it just sounds better in every way to my ears. My power amp tubes are RI tung sols and I really like them as well.
Now the speaker...... I really do like the EV12L that I had in there. But because I am now carting it around a bit to jam at buddies houses it's weight shows. The G12H30 sounds bright to me, in any amp I use it with.... so I might try a Tone Tubby H1. But I'm nitpicking here. This amp sings, or barks, or stings, takes pedals like a champ,....well you know... you got one too
Speakers?? WGS .. you'll never look back.. I've tried most of them over the yrs.. I have tone tubies,webers,jensens.celestions back in the boxes on the shelf.. I wish I tried them sooner.. I like RFT 12ax7 too but have it in my Marshall JTM45. They are very much like NOS mullard but 1/4 the cost..cheers
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
