I have the same amp! have a tungsol in there now, EI are great in the v2!!I am resurrecting an old thread....
FWIW, the TAD 7025S sounds fantastic in the V1 position of my VOX AC15HW1(X). I like it as much, if not better, than my NOS Mullard, NOS Telefunken, Ei Elite Gold and JJECC803S gold-pin.
Not quite. Thought we had been over that long ago, but my memory could fail me.Those TAD's are just relabeled Chinese tubes. Bob

Ken is fine lol, I might have to the try that tube out, i bought the EI from TC Tubes didnt have any issues with it in the v2, wouldnt use it in the v1 prb have microphonic issues. Tads really that good huh? warmer sounding?I know Kenny. I've seen you on the VOX Discussion board.
Yes, Tung Sols are nice---I have to do some more experimenting with them. EIs are great and like you said, better in the V2 position. I used to use EI exclusively (e.g. preamp and power tubes) because they sound great but I always had problems with them, even with the top of the line EI Elite Golds. NOw they are sitting n boxes on the shelf.
Wait a minute (!) Can I call you Kenny, Ken?
I really like the TAD 7025-S and use it as a stock tube in one of my standard production model amps. It's a great sounding tube that breaks up nicely. It can be used as a cathode follower without issue too. Can't remember what the exact tube is (TAD rebrands tubes) but it's nice.

el 84's any good?
Is the one I linked to a "9th Gen"? It does say it's the "latest" version, so?
