  • WTT 12AX7 or 12AY7 tubes - have JJs, looking to try Groove Tube or Mullard

    Hey all!

    I have a couple extra JJ 12AX7s (ECC83s) and 12AY7s (ECC81)
    I'm looking for a darker sounding tube of some kinda. Groove Tubes and Mullards are pretty dark in my experience, but I'd also be down to try something else that fits the bill.

    Thanks!

      Interesting... I have all three, but my Mullard and GTs are in use in other amps right now. The JJs are clearly the brightest among them, but I know there’s a lot of relabeling and rebranding among tube manufacturers. Do you know how to tell which su type of JJ you’re talking about?

        I thought that JJ was the only Slovakian made tube and as such werenít rebranded....I may be wrong though.
        The Russian and Chinese tubes are definitely rebranded.

          I don't know the details of what's made where either

          I may not be expressing the sound I'm hearing properly. I don't the JJs have a lot of treble, but I think the quality of the treble is not something I want. I'm looking for something bit smoother / sweeter, with less bite in the treble frequencies__PRESENT
