Maybe give the JJ gold pin E88CC a try if you haven't. Selected for low noise/microphonics they're @ $30 a piece. I like them every bit as much as my beloved Tele 6922's.
I've lstened to a lot of Amperex/Phillips, Siemens, Japanese and Russian 6DJ8/6N23/6922/7308 over the decades and in different preamps. They all had their charms, but the Teles ultimately won me over. The JJs sound so close to the Teles that I have trouble telling them apart. The JJs don't last as long as the Teles, but you can buy four or five pairs of the JJ tubes for what one pair of Teles might cost you.
As always, your mileage may vary.
Thanks very much for the suggestion, I bought a pair of the JJ's. Very nice tubes, pretty much what I was looking for, I am very happy with their sound. We'll see in extended listening, but very pleased so far.
Thanks again - Rick
