RE: French 12AX7 Sonic Signatures

Hi FenderLover, As a matter of fact that helps a lot. As I've gone through the usual suspects like Mullard and Telefunken's and found that to my ears, I preferred the tone of either Tungsram - Mazda ( Silver Plated ) - RCA and CBS/Hytron 12AX7's more. Yet I was following something were it seems you're quite fond of the Raytheon JAN - 5751 ( BPT
M and Windmill Getter 5751's ) and 12AX7 Long Black Plates ( Sq. Getter NOS 1950's ) as well. So in my mind your recommendation makes prefect sense. Thanks for taking the time to voice said opinion, as I'm not new to this - but I haven't covered all of the options, so it's all about gaining extra insight into the unknown. Regards,Oscar
