I recently have been getting ready to test out different preamp tubes for my guitar amp.
The V1 slot is the only one I have messed with. It takes 12ax7, I had a JJ brand, now chinese brand and love the difference. Now I want more options
My question is this. wtf is a 12ax7
I see there are different types and I want to be very safe with my amp.
Im looking on ebay and see 12ax7, 12bz7, 12ua7, ect, ect many many others.
What do they all have in common? They start with a 12 and end with a 7.
Does all the mumbo jumbo in between mean anything at all to me???
If I toss in a 12bz7 instead of the 12ax7 is that going to work for me?
Someone please explin this
