I was surfing the web and found about these:

 

http://www.jetcityamplification.com/#!retrovalves/ctjr

 

they're 12ax 7 tube replacements. Anyone have any comments on these? Might offer new tonal possibilities. TTK says that using the red series is like throwing a tube screamer in front of your amp...

I researched them a while back... and ended with this conclusion....

 

"Why would i want to turn my tube amp into a solid state amp?"

 

and then of course i moved along.....

I wonder how this would affect the DT25 which only has a PI tube.

They look like illuminating tampons to me.

Cool little idea but a bit pricey for me. I'd rather buy a tube I think. I might try them in my Jet City Picovalve one day.

I mostly play at home  and am always having fun learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not. Lastly I'm not a salesman, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here.
