There are plenty of posts where users have swapped the tubes, just do a search and see what sound they obtain.

The thing is tubes can reduce quality drastically if they are not of good quality. And in these cheap units tubes are...cheap too...you get the picture.
Just ordered a pair of these ones:

When we (me and my brother who like tubes more than anything) were swapping different tubes in the kt-2a, the differences where quite noticeable and always better then the originals ones. Depending on what kind of sound we were after we would swap up tubes.

But if you want to listen the differences on a cheap set of monitor, don’t bother, you won’t.

But in the ART PRO MPA as in the Bugera the differences where underwhelming.
Sound a bit different. Sure. Better? Subjective.

This is my general experience with tube swapping. The china tubes are not as bad as people think. Why: They have a long history in tube production.
Yea I think I have a tube that's going bad, so I'm planning on buying one soon. It's not just for "enhancement" haha.

I had and sold the KT. It woulda been fun to try different tubes but I bought some other eq's and let it go. I may pick one up again for bass, it def worked great there...
