    Someone had suggested on another board that I put a 5751 in the V1 position of my AC15 to clean things up a little and give it a bit more natural OD. However when I spoke to my amp tech he was a little worried that I might loose too much total volume and suggested just trying different 12ax7's for now (JJs specifically) and maybe swap in the 5751 later if I'm still looking for somethig different.

    I like it in the V1 of my Marshall. At least the old GE branded one I have..I tend to keep it in it's box though

    My buddy up the street just put one in the V-1 of his Mesa/Boogie Mark III and is over the moon about it. He told me I need to put one in mine. I am ordering one as we speak.

    Not that much of a difference really. Between the 12AX7 and 5751 you will notice the difference but not much. Bob.
