Mainly looking at power tubes, but also curious what you guys are using for pre's.

So far I'm looking at a pair TAD's and Mesa's.

I will not go with SED's =C=. I just put in a pair of those EL34s in my modded Eggie Seminar Head and it seams to have lost some balls and punch. Those may go up in the Classifieds soon if anyone wants a matched pair with only 3 hours on them. It'll help me pay for my 6L6's.

Thanks!

I found them more defined and they have their own snarl that personally I didn't feel with JJs.
Yet even JJ sounds good in this amp also.

TAD WGC (short bottle)
TAD GC (tall bottle)
Sovtek WXT+
Sovtek 5881
Ruby GC-MSTR

Ugh...decisions, decisions...Any help from you guys with experiences with these is helpful. Thanks!
