I wanted my Engl Screamer 50 combo to sound a lot more warm and suited for blues. I first put four of these Preferred Series 7025 in replacement of the three 12AX7 Sovtek and one 12AX7 China Groove Tube that were in. Swapping the tubes made a world of difference. It went from dull and cold as hell to sunny and warm paradise. Then I changed the two Sovtek 5881wxt for two paired Winged C SED 6L6GC and after biasing it now sounds like the amp I always wanted for bluesy and crunchy sounds. I highly recommend! Thank you Jon for the advice :) you said I would be impressed, well I am!
