I have tried them in my M12 head. They are a tad warmer than a standard el84 but did not totally change the character of the amp. Ain’t gonna make it sound like a Z wreck if that’s what you’re hoping. I know I was Nothing life changing but they are nice. Major feature is that they last forever. Hypothetically 10X longer than new production 84’s
I have tried the ones from the tube store. One of them drifted/died on me fairly quickly less than 100 hours. If I get more, I would buy them from Perry, who is a favorite 6n14n dealer here on the forum. Here’s his Reverb shop. Sells pairs and quads. Literally the exact tubes Doc uses. reverb.com/shop/rogue-8
If you want to lower headroom, the JJ EL844’s are a cheap experiment. Around $25 for a pair and lower the headroom 25%.

Thanks for the replies.
I wasn't thinking it would turn my M12 into a Z-Wreck but was hoping for a little more warmth. I made the swap and it does seem to have warmed the amp a little but not dramatically so. I also put a set of 6n14n's in my 2011 MAZ 18 NR for good measure.

Awesome. Well they sure will accomplish that!
I’ve found the EF86 to be the most drastic tone shaper. Could try a few options there as well to warm things up. I really like the RFT. A more affordable NOS option. The stock Winged C is good also, but has a very “round” tone. Almost a little tubby in the mids. And stays VERY clean. If you want a tad less mids, and more crunch, NOS tubes have served me well in that.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

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!
