Jon S. wrote:Or Brad could chime in here directly. In any event, like many here (you, too, probably), I have drawers full of preamp tubes, old stock (GE, RCA, Phillips, Raytheon) and new (Groove Tubes, EH, JJ, Sovtek, etc.). Sounds like a fun upcoming afternoon at some point (tube testing in the SMS)!

I actually really love putting a 5751 in a fender's first gain stage. it lowers the amount of preamp gain youll get, and i think it adds a ton of sparkle and depth. dont know about an SMS though never tried em in one
