Self-biased SE A amp, so don't yell at me about biasing.
what exactly is involved in changing preamp/poweramp tube types (stock is 12ax7/el84) and what kind of variety is actually an option?
Quick summary: any 12A_ tube (12AX7, 12AY7, 12AU7, 12AZ7, 12AT7) and their military derivatives (you have to check a tube compatibility list, I can only remember the 5651, 7025 off hand). No real substitute for the power tubes, the 7819 is just a military EL84, not significantly different... If you're handy and can rewire the socket for octal preamp tubes (and if the PT can handle the voltage and the OT is somewhere in the ballpark for output resistance) you can open up a lot of possibilities...
