not a thunderverb 50 but it uses pretty much the same tubes

I use 2 ruby el34's and one ruby ecc83 in the power section and 3 ruby ecc83's in the preamp section... they sound great and they are really smooth and tight...

hope this helps :)

The PI tube is considered part of the power section so an ECC83 is fine in there.

I have a Rockerverb and use JJ and winged-C EL 34's with good results. I'm using Tung Sol 12AX7's in the preamp and PI and JAN Philips 12AT7 in the reverb and FX loop positions. I tried JJ and Mullard reissues in the preamp sections but the Tung Sols just do it for me.

Some of the latest Chinese tubes are the best quality I have seen for ages in a modern tube. Groove Tubes are selling them and rave about them too.
