Anyone try both the Brimar and RFT 12AX7's in V1 on the RxES? Just curious as to how these two tubes respond in this amp. I'm thinking about ordering a few from Mike at KCA, and just wanted to see what you guys thought.

I replaced my GT12ax7M (V1) and the 12ax7LPS (V3) for two Brimar 12ax7's I got from Mike in my RXeS. I noticed the amp got a little less glassy, but not by much (I just turn my treble knob up a bit more now) and the midrange opened up A LOT. It didn't give me more midrange, its just got more depth and vibrancy. And the big key was, the Brimars lowered the noise floor A TON. And now the overdose is even more usable than before. I wholeheartedly recommend the Brimars in the RXeS.

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
