try it. You might like it. It won't hurt anything.

That RCA blackplate 5751 is an AWESOME tube! I really don't think you will notice any gain difference, but it will sound fantastic!

5751s are sweet. I just wish I would have bought more when the time was right. I bought a few sleeves of NOS GE 5 Stars from a guy on ebay a few years back - 8 bucks a tube. now you can't even get them close for that. :( Oh well. Enjoy'em. I use them in just about everything now days.

I forgot to add that the 12av7s are generally pretty sweet too. You can get a lot of microphonic ones, but you can usually get them cheap.. I think they also go by 5965. Very nice tube for the $$
