Now I'm on the process to change all the tubes on my Manley V mu. Today's tube production (not NOS) usually vari from 15 bucks to around 40 bucks a tube. Usually. Now I'm going full NOS (Sylvania Gold Brand) and this can be up to 4 time that price. I've already changed the Input and Output tubes and its pure bliss
So you say to let the gear warm up for at lest half an hour before plaing anything through it.
