ART Pro Channel Tube Replacement for bass?

This has been asked to death, but my query is a little more specific:

I recently got the ART Pro Channel to use primarily as a bass preamp. I'm liking the the color and gain I'm getting out of the tubes, but I'm wondering if I replaced them with tubes tailored specifically for guitar/bass amps, I may get even more favorable results. Pushing the tubes that are in it now to distortion gives it more of a fizzy clipping sound rather than a fuller overdrive.

Tubes aren't THAT expensive, so I'll probably try a few out. What suggestions do you have? I'd like to try some higher-gain tubes too. That's kind of the point - I want more drive!
