I bought a used Traynor YGL-1 from Long and McQuade and found it had a bad tube in it. Initially, I replaced them all with a matched pair of Mesa Boogie EL-84, a Mesa 12AX7 in the V2 position and a Mesa 12SPX7 in V1. While the sound was vastly improved, I felt that the proper tones of the amp were not shining through. After reading about various 12AX7 tubes, I decided to try one of these 12AX7EH tubes in the V1 and move the 12SPX7 to the V2. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Seriously, the amp sings now... I can get any tones I want from sparkling cleans to a perfect growl for 80's metal. I would highly recommend this tube for anyone looking for a well balanced tone with sparkling highs, buttery mids and a crisp bottom end. Try one!
