I'm looking to retube my 400+ in the near future, I'm probably going to consult Lord Valve about this proceedure once I get th $$ to do so. but step 1 is new speakers, hopefully picking them up tonight
Well the type depends on the amp unless you want to do all kinds of biasing and shit. My amp has 6L6 power tubes and the standard 12AX7 in the preamp. I had JJ tubes from Eurotubes and they make a big difference.
4 x JJ 6L6GC 3 x High Gain JJ ECC83S's for V1,V2 + V3 (plannig on getting a Tung-Sol for V1 very soon) 1 x JJ ECC83S for V4 1 x Balanced JJ EC83S for V5
For the Rectifier tubes i use 2 x JJ GZ34's instead of the 5U4's when playing in the tube Rectifier mode. I find these really tighten things up. (Although I still spend most of my time playing in Silicon Diode rectification mode 99% of the time so these tubes don't get much use).
