    All the other amps on this site have pages dedicated to tube preamp selection, so why not one for the Archon!


    Anyways, I'm currently running the stock tubes, but I love to mix and match!



    I'm just curious if anyone out there has swapped their tubes and what for/why?

    I have an EL-34 loaded Archon 50 coming my way as we speak..I'll update after I get it, and if I decide to play some 'musical tubes' with it.
