Re: EF86 input tube (wow!)
Well you lost me once you hit the gain controls... :O)  
I got my EF-86 from Triode Electronics. Ned told me that he pretests them for microphonics which is a big + since they seem to be very susceptible. Time will tell with this tube, but it's mounted in a head that doesn't sit on top of the cab so it's exposed to very little vibration. It's a good thing b/c as I said this tube is like a jet engine compared to the 12ay7 in the other channel. :O)
