    I agree totally. I might buy a cheap tube or two. Or maybe one better $45.00 tube.
    After that, if I was still a big fan, time to get a Lyr 3.

    But you don't have to spend that much. Get recommdations from the threads, like a recommendation for a 6sn7 type which has a very strong history. I did that with the Tung-Sol 6sn7gt mouse ears, they fit my budget and sonic requirements. So I stocked up have about 5 years worth for a nice consistent sound for the long haul. Don't buy willy-nilly, Do research first.

    That's a pretty good idea, and one I've pretty much adopted - except I have more than a tube or 2…:wink:
    Personally, I find there's a much bigger difference switching between tube families - say going from a 6dj8 to a 6cg7, than trying to compare different 6dj8s. Get a good example (or 2) of each family, and most importantly, don't spend more on a tube than you did for the amp.

    I would not go much over $50.00. Maybe $75.00, but I doubt it.

    Same set-up today except that the Liquid Spark was replaced by a Burson Fun-Classic.

    V2 has more bass than the Burson and sounds a bit livelier. I was running many Trombone Shorty songs (in AAC).

    I am again impressed. At least initially.

    Different brands in the same family can make a difference as well, I’m sure @bcowen can fill you in on the sonic qualities of GE tubes :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I try not to mention GE around him. I'd hate to have his head explode…

    LOL! GE's are easy to describe: meh. That's the only one-word description I can come up with that the forum won't convert into ****. :relaxed:

    Your consideration is greatly appreciated. And will certainly result in less risk of a gross mess. :smile:
