    Default Tube Rolling.

    Hi guys,
    Since my last post about my old Ortofon VMS20E, I’ve replace the stylus with an Ortofon VMS3E and she’s singing again.
    My next plan is to change the valves (ECC83 / 12AX7) in my Project Tube Box.
    Anybody done this and what would you recommend?

    Depends how much you want to spend. :-)

    Telefunken ecc83s or Mullard cv4004 both extremely expensive and thought to be the best by many. I use both and are dependent upon equipment. Good luck with this one.

    For a new budget one I rather liked the Sovtek 12AX7LPS I had in a pre a while ago.

    Can only recommend Telefunken as they were the best (IMO) of any valve I tried, and that was MANY!

    I have Mullards and Tele’s amongst others. Best I’ve heard are Tungsram foil getter with welded plates. A good pair of NOS of any of the well known quality makes should be good though.

    Tesla ECC803S factory code 32 yellow print gold pin.

    As good as the Telefunken ECC803S. I have owned both at the same time.Even made with the same tooling equipment.

    Mid-80s Mullard CV4004 white box mil spec.
