Replacement Valves for TH30

Post by Heartsetonhope » Fri Aug 16, 2019 9:47 am

I’m going to have the valves in my TH30 Head replaced as it’s in need of some tlc. Are there any particular brands you’d recommend for the valve types below;

4x EL84
1x ECC81/12AT7
4x ECC83/12AX7

I prefer JJs which are what Orange put stock in my 5x Terrors. But I have tried some other brands that are worth mentioning as I was experimenting on my Dark Terror for changes in tone not to long ago...
Tung-Sol
TAD
Mullard
SovTek
Electro-Harmonix

If you browse reverb.com you will find some tube dealers that have made up kits specifically chosen for certain models of Orange amps and can get some ideas there, just search "Orange TH30" and you'll see the listings.

Yeah, ditto the JJ's. They have been consistently good right out of the packaging.

There is an article that I've seen where Ade recommends using JJs and we'll I've found them very good.
