If you make an adapter like those proliferating on Ebay, it will help those (me) without a soldering skills, iron or bench. I have used several 12AX7s and 5751s and could then compare them to your old stock 6n2p-EV.
Eli as usual has very good advice for the adapter. I have no interest in making an adopter, and trying to distribute it. I just wanted to give a heads up.
An adapter intended for a 6CG7 to go into a 12AU7 socket will work for you. The 12AX7 and 12AU7 pin out identically, as do the 6n2p and 6CG7.
Bought a bunch of these around year 2000. Tried them in a Vox AC30 restoration. One thing, from that experience... these are "tight" tubes. They don't start sounding like a good 12AX7 until about a months constant use.
So don't get initially discouraged. Esp if you rewired the sockets.
