What do you hear as the difference between the two in the Mini? What's your favorite single EL84, current production and NOS?
I ordered an AY and an AU both EH versions. What I hear with the AU dimed is more high end and chime. With the AY at 12:00 which seems to put the two at about the same volume level overall, you get a slightly warmer and thicker sound. To put it simply, I would say the AU gives you a more F*nd*r flavor and the AY more of a Vox sound.
The AU seems to mellow the response like a compressor would and the AY increases the response of the Mini.
My Mini is one of the few zamps that i bought new, a head that sounded so great through a single Blue, that i have never even looked inside. I will comment when i have time to experiment, i think this little amp does not get as much tinker time as the "grownups" do. Dwight
works pretty well with a 5751, heck I even use a jj non nos 5751. got a good one I guess. the 12au7, I have a nos mallard 12au7, still kills the gain and volume drops to far. I use one of those greenchild mr boost, like a lizard leg, but cleaner with more dbs.

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
