So, what didn't you like about the JJ's? What are they not doing you wish they would? I've mentioned before that I've shelved my precious Tele's because the JJ's are so very close to the sound of the Tele 6922 in my CAT that I'm preserving my Teles and burning the JJs instead.
For acoustic jazz, some late '60s dimple-disc, Amperex 6DJ8's might lite your fire. I'm somewhat dubious the 7308 (of any manufacture) would do it for you, but then maybe I've misinterpreted your goal. When people tell me they want something to accommodate acoustic jazz, I think that means a very natural mid-range and holographic imaging.
I have no experience with your amp, so it's difficult to make a solid recommendation.
Tell you what, drop me a PM and we can go off line and cover this in more depth. There are SO MANY alternatives. Would like to get a bit more of what it is you're looking to achieve.
My apologies Sondek,
I forgot to respond to your question regarding the JJ's, as the Sovtec E88CC's are still installed as stock, I haven't gotten around to placing the JJ's | Tungsram's | Tesla's in yet, as I'm the sort that like to find a bunch of different flavors, go through them provided that they don't exceed my $350 pair set limit, as I'm a believer in setting priorities like shelter | lights and gas | eating as necessities, Hi-Fi as much as it brings me joy, has to at times take a backseat, in other words " no $500, no $700 per pairs allowed beyond my dreams ", yet funny thing is, the Telefunken Ulm are actually on my list.
And while I've a pair of Amperex 6922 | ECC88 Orange Globe NOS 1967, which came in earlier, after researching the various vintages or coloring label wise, as well as sonic differences between the domestic and Holland made versions, it seems these are looked upon as a good starting place.
Once again, if you've time?, by all means give me a call whenever you've a moment, as I generally go to bed around 3:30AM, feel free to call anytime you've settled in?, and have time?.
Until then......., peace young man.
Thanks for responding, as I went back over the course of the last 3 nights finding your post on these. You're correct in stating I want a more holographic sound, and said naturalness in the mid-band areas, yet with more of a sense of neutrality above all else, as overly warm or laid-back signatures do very little besides have me as the wife to bring me a pillow " as I refer to this type of coloration as nap time alertness time ".
PM to follow........, and thanks again.
