Thanks for the tip! I'll check it out if it ever comes to that but I don't tend to favor outrageous EQs because they'll affect things in negative ways. For instance, using EQ typically introduces more distortion. In some instances, it can effect the delicate balance between the frequencies.
The tubes themselves should allow the sound to naturally bloom in all frequencies. Frankly, the tubes themselves introduce some distortion and incorporating some artificial EQ would jack that up as well.
But I do appreciate the link and will bookmark it if I ever need it in the future.
For my personal tastes, I thought the difference between both the Amperex OG and the GE were rather staggering ; the GE was weaker and had more of a laid-back approach with good articulation but next to no bass. I also found it a tad cold and analytical.-sounding. Meanwhile, the OG has a more forward presentation (although without any ear fatigue) and tons of *deep* bass. Good musicality as well. It's definitely more to my liking. It exhibits a warmer sound for sure.
Of course, there's no accounting for tastes so feel free to review both yourself and report back. :)
