Re: V1 options

DarrylRe: V1 options
I like two configurations:  
 
1) EH 12ax7 in V1 and my magical National Union 12Ay7 tube in V2. It sounds better this way then switched.  
 
2) EH 12ax7 in V1 and a JJ EC803S in V2. The EC803S initially gave me trouble until I changed the grounding scheme (i.e. 1 star for high current and 1 star of low current). I need to try another EC803S in V1.  
 
Also I like JJ 6V6 pwr tubes. My only complaint is they rattle a little.  
 
BTW, I was showing off my little 5E3 today for the guy that works on my guitars and plugged into an old Marshall 4x12 with G12H30s and it sounded incredible.
