Tube's are getting a bit stale on the '284, if I had to guess they have around 1500 hours on them. Any suggestions for replacement?

First, if you have not modded your 284, then you MUST be aware of your power tube choice limits. Mr. KCA (Blue Strat) has more information on his site: http://www.kcanostubes.com/content/modern-el84-amps-and-nos-el84s

I did the mod on mine, and really enjoy being able to use my favorite EL84: '50s rX_ types from Philips factories in Heerlen NL, Sittard NL, and Vienna AT.
