I very much prefer the gold pin JJ 6922s. The GL is a good tube, but sounds a little dark and congested to me in my CAT SL1. The JJ is more balanced and has a more believable mid-range tone. Tube Depot or Cryoset would be good sources. No matter which 6922 you buy, don't cheap-out. Pay extra to have them selected for low noise and low microphony.
Can't comment on the JJ's (haven't tried them), but my +1 is for your solid advice to buy tested and matched tubes from a reliable vendor.
To the OP: with such a nice (and expensive) component, don't have unsafe sex and buy tubes off of Ebay. :) Stick with a reliable and trustworthy supplier (Jim McShane being one) that thoroughly tests the tubes before sending to you. You'll pay a little extra, and it's totally worth it.
