Re: Hot Rod Deluxe "Mod"
I like the EHs quite a bit too and I'm very pleased the EHs and JJs are different sounding and each handle things in a different way.  
By the way, I'm not convinced the JJs are really 6V6s at all either!  
When I buy the EHs I get them from MOJO because they pretest them and match to within a few ma of the lot.  
Their test jig runs the tubes at over 430vdc and with a real negative bias attached to the grid.  
Then I just tell them what idle current # tubes I want based on their own test gear.  
I prefer the #22 through #28 ( a little cool) as they seem to play well in everything with minimal bias adjustments.  
JJs are crap shoot from AES/CE Dist and I frequently send LARGE number of tubes back to them as it seems to me they don't give a rat's ass about quality.

just ordered a matched quartet for evaluation from New Sensor. We will see how they do. -Cheers, Paul
