Default Sonic Frontiers Line 3 tubes and cap recommendations

I just picked one up and was looking to change out the tubes as I believe these are original and the LV1 & LV2 are the main 2 game changers..
Parts connection recommended V-caps but at near $800 Canadian I dont think so..
Anyone beefed one up

Don't bother with the coupling caps- hype, legend, and religion aside, they make little to no difference in any competent circuit. Tubes may make some difference- what type do you have in there?

No, I meant the tube type. Like 12AX7 or 6DJ8 or whatever.

Not sure why you assumed that. All are important, all of the 6922 are in the signal path. (I don't have a schematic unfortunately)

There's a lot of good 6DJ8/6922 out there. Among new production, I have some EH that seem to measure quite well and show low microphonics. I'd stay away from the crazy NOS collectors' market.

It's possible, maybe even probable, that the tubes you have in there are still absolutely fine.

Get rid of the damping rings. No competent circuit needs them. Problem solved.
