Best Tubes for EMX1?

Postby DJ Shifty on Fri Aug 17, 2012 7:46 am

Hi Experts...I am new to the Forum, just picked up an EMX-1 few days ago. It was a floor piece at my local music store and after bringing it home I noticed the stock tubes were not in good condition. Seemed like some of the internals were peeling.

So I looked through the forums and noticed that a tube replacement is easy and ideal. My local music store has the following 12AX7 tubes available. Wanted advice on which would be the best for EMX-1.

1. Sovtek 12AX7WA Preamp Tube
2. Electro Harmonix 12AX7EH Preamp Tube
3. JJ Tubes 12AX7/ECC83 Preamp Tube
4. Groove Tubes GT-12AX7C Pre-Amp Tube
5. Groove Tubes GT-12AX7-R Preamp Tube (Russian)

Also, they do not have any Matched and Balanced Pairs. Was wondering if this will be an issue. Thanks in advance for the help.
