    Hey all.

    I have a Laney VH100R and I want to upgrade it abit with new tubes in order to get the cleanest possible sound I can out of it.

    It has El34s in it but can run with 6L6s.

    Also what preamp tube options do I have?

    It uses 12AX7s.

    Thanks.

    Using a lower gain preamp tube will help, try a 12at7 or 12au7.
    Or for a slightly less gain (subtle) try a 5751.
