That is very well done. I don't find the stock band uncomfortable but if you have to make your own, this is surely the way to do it..dB
Hybrids like the LG but not OTL type tube amps
The Liquid Glass cannot use either of those tubes, they are power pentodes and not dual triodes. There are however more than enough options to try various tubes. and if you want to extend the number of possible tubes, a simple loctal adapter opens up a slew of others to try.    ..dB
