Project Sunrise/PS2 Tube Rolling Thread (and maybe even Project Horizon and Project Ember) - Page 25

I also would say the 12at7 Telefunken is my favorite tube with the Ember.  I had been using a Mullard cv4024 for a few months and really liked it, but kept hearing good things about the Telefunken so I bought a couple of used ones, that while good were not up to the Mullard.  Listening to the two Telefunkens switching back and forth over a few weeks got to know the difference between the two and decided they may have been used up.  Do I bought a nos and what a difference.  Vocals especially female are fantastic.  Listening to Patricia Barber right now and it is mesmerizing.  Think I am done rolling for awhile.  If it gets better then this I would be amazed.

Well I am amazed got an RCA 12ax7 (actually a Mullard built) and now I am really confused.  I thought the Telefunken had all I needed I just did not know I needed this tube. Just a little better than the Telefunken and CV's but easy to tell it is better.  Firms up the bass on the Ember a bit, less muddy.  Mids and highs are great also.
