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.
