Well, I have decided to buy a balanced NOS 5751 and try it out in the PI. Trying to smooth things out on my Maz38 just a little. I will try it in V1 also. Just for the sake of hearing it for myself. Any thoughts on where I might like this tube best? Should be here by early next week.

Well, I just tried my NOS Matched Balanced Jan-Philips tube in the PI, V5 on my Maz38. I am surprised. The change is very subtle but it is noticeable. It warms up my tone a little, and gets rid of the notchy top end the amp had. Like I said the change is not HUGE but I can hear a difference from the 12AX7LPS Sovtek that came stock in my Maz38.
I LOVE 5751s. One came stock as the PI in my Mazerati and I've been using them in V1 for a while, too. Smooths things out nicely for me - I don't like tons of high end. I'm trying to gradually stock up on NOS ones - I think Myles has said that the new Sovteks aren't even close to NOS specs.

Hey All, Based on a suggestion from sama I replaced the V1 with a 5751. I also purchased a NOS GZ34 from nitehawk55. My MAZ Jr/verb 1-12 sounds amazing with better head room and tone. Thanks guys! Rick

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
