I had a preamp tube go microphonic in my Mesa M-Pulse 600 and was wondering what brands you guys prefer in your amps.

That's what I was kind of thinking. I have jj goldpin EC83 in my guitar amps and was thinking about trying the tungsol reissue in my bass amp and probably pop them in my guitar amp to try as well.

Buy several kinds and try all. Each amp reacts to each his own. I have an Eden and
tried alot of tubes with it. The Eden tube sounds the best.
I saw an article about the weather being a factor when a run of tubes were made.
Lots of snow in Russia and China......

I recommend that you just get a Mesa replacement tube. They're typically Russian and are matched within a certain gain range for consistency and reliability.

If you're obsessed with the idea of tube swapping, check out comparisons on thetubestore.com
