changing the tubes in a manley

do different brand tubes effect the sound drastically?

Tried it lately. At least in my case what came out I think isn´t drastically and it partially needs good DA to judge, but it is perceivable on single track and would definitly be the more advantageous to stacks in a mix.

I recorded examples from a single channel step by step with originals, pre circuit with different tubes and line circuit with different ones to compare.

Can print clips for listening if you want.

this sounds dumb, but has anyone tried that Behringer tube eq thing? I mean how bad can it sound? I personally think this manley pultec is mostly hype.

The sound is not in the tube but in the transformers.
