Has anyone ever tried NOS preamp tubes in the SE+? Being a modern, high-gain amp, I thought it might be more compatible with modern production tubes. Has anyone had success with NOS? What combinations did you like?
Try asking at the Suhr amp forum. It's at http://www.online-discussion.com/Suhr/ under Amp Talk. There's a bunch of guys on there that have played around with all different preamp tubes. But from what I've read, different ones only made a slight difference... Maybe enough to experiment with modern tubes, but not enough to dump a bunch of cash into NOS stuff. Please report any experiences you have though, as I'm interested in doing that too!
