    Cool. Be good to hear what you think after a burn-in.

    Same valve types as the II and IV. Here is what I ordered from Watford Valves if you are interested.

    EF95/M8100/6AK5/6J1-MULLARD (Mullard) GBP 10.00 x 2 = GBP 20.00
    6H30EB-ELECTRO HARMONIX GOLD PIN (Electro Harmonix Gold) GBP 24.30 x 2 = GBP 48.60
