Tube apostasy

Yes, I confess..
Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa..

I confess I have been running my Mk III monos with (gasp!) different manufacturers KT88s in each amp!!

-They just seem to complement each other and deliver a superior hybrid sound than either brand used homogeneously. Kind of like blended wines (another purist no-no).

The same result does not obtain if the diferent brands are "mixed" in each mono. I'll keep it up until I discover a more satisfactory (to me) result.

I guess I'm just a kooky rebel-type guy.

Any other 'sinners' out there??
