pluged in a few of the black-plate RCA 12AU7s....another OMG moment lol, amazing 3D depth/harmonics. And I'm still sorting through all these tubes, I found a few Amperex 12AU7s bet they are nice too lol. I'm right though I have tried the RCA short grey plates before and they are nice and all but every time I swapp 1 out with a Mullard or a Amperex its just like OMG, more warmth and stunning smoothness/harmonics.

yeah was messing around rolling tubes in the stealth its front end is kinda blackfacish, tried a few Blackburn mullards and a Amperex it was nice of course, then I found a GE 12AT7, a 12AY7 and OMG really made the stealth come alive never played around with GEs much but no wonder they were in Blackface preamps alot lol. This really bloomy open Harmonic zing, yet really tight at the same time, I like them more I think. I know lots guys don't like the GEs why not?
