    Good choices. All three are, to my ears, very different and will probably offer you lots of options in customizing your sound.

    In my amp, I liked the Electo-Harmonix 12AX7 the best (I used them in all positions for a more consistent sound, but mix and match yielded a nice blend, too) followed by the Tung-Sol 12AX7 in a mix-and match with JJ ECC83-S (I found the Tung-Sol 12AX7 a little bright, so I balanced it out with a dark sounding JJ ECC83-S in the gain stages).

    I'm sure you'll get some interesting results in your amp. Let us know what you experienced.

    I was a bit hesitant to open this post, in fear a toilet might be involved.
