Tube Rolling With The Micros......

The Orange Micro Terror and Micro Dark (which I have) feature one preamp tube, a 12ax variety to help with producing the grind that happens, along with some tube compression in these Orange products. I have a JJ 12ax7 in mine as the stock tube, but have any of you Micro owners decided to experiment with the preamp tube and either toned down your sound or just the opposite? Did using a different brand tube noticeably improve or detract from your expectations?

Right now while my Dark Terror is out for repair, I gone back to using mine into a PPC112. The V30 speaker now broken in and the Micro Dark with 2 years use are producing a warm “clean” once the amp is played for about 20 minutes or so. This, wothna Les Paul. The crunch also exhibits a smoothness with some chime going on, but not as much of that chime as what I get from the Dark Terror.
