Hi guys,

I'm thinking of retubing both my preamps. It's either gonna ben with Tungsols, JJs or Chinese (Shuguang)
I'm pretty sure I'll be using the Tungsol in V1 for both preamps, I was just wondering what your recommendation would be for other positions.

Thanks!

i had a 570 with RFT on v1 and rest was Shuguang

Great tone

i believe Shuguang are stock on ENGL, actually a TAD RT001

Engl stock preamp tubes vary I think.
In the manual they mention "selected" 12AX7 which are different when you look at the tube design.
I ended up putting Tungsol in V1 and will probably put Shuguang in other positions, as this seems to be the current trend in many amps.
