I use the new Mullard 12AX7s in my AD50 and EHXs in my AD15. I experimented a few times with PMs, Tungsols, JJs and the EHXs in the AD50 and the Mullards in the AD15... but this is where I repeatedly settle.

And these days I’m running the MV as loud as I can and the Gain as low as I can.

With the AD15 I use the stock V30 but with the AD50 I’m back favouring 2 x Greenbacks.

Sounds to me as if you are going for a cleaner style with the tweaking you set your Orange at.

I have a Dark Terror and just re-tubed with TAD EL84 (2) Preferred Series 7025 (3) and a JAN-
Phillips 12AT7. I've been wondering about what would be a “bright” sounding preamp tube for the
V1 slot. I've been experimenting with a bright “cleaner” tone with this single channel amp.
