Ray, here are a few that I have rolled and a short description. BTW the 12ax7 socket is cool because you can run a 12au7 or 5751 in it.
Mullard 12ax7 10M series; full bodied, warm smooth mids.
Amperex 12ax7 labled Sel Lorenz with falcon logo dimple disc getter; big fat soundstage kinda like a Telefunken on steroids.
Mullard 12ax7 labled Siemens ECC83 with falcon logo; a little flat sounding untill I use them on a harsh/bright recording and they really sound great.
1949 Ken Rad 12ax7; these sound great with any music nice airy topend and smooth midrange and bass
GE 5751 five star triple mica black plates; nice tight bass, very focused and a bit steril.
1957 Sylvania 5751 triple mica black plate d-getter; very nice airy topend tight bass liquid midrange, these babys are nice.
1957 Brimar 13D5 (12au7) very mellow and s.w.e.e.t. low noise, not even a hint of harsh-ness
1957 Amperex ECC186 / 7316 (12au7) very 3-D with airy open topend and liquid midrange.
Eric, you forgot to warn Ray about the Mullards 10M prices, you don't want him to have a heart attack! I have to back you up on the Siemens dual post getter 12AX7 it's a awesome tube!!!
And I have to back you on the RFT 12AU7 midrange- that's where I am at.
Good sound—like good music, good wine and good fellowship—is meant to be shared.
