which is better for v2,v3 for high gain tone
these one or rt001
TAD: for V2 the RT008 is my(!) first pick; if V3 is the phase driver then I'd pick the RT001; if V3 is also a gain stage then the RT008. Finally this is a very personal matter. Take one each and try position for position to find YOUR preferred blend.

Received a trio of TAD ECC83WA pre's for my birthday for my Bugera 1990. Man what an upgrade! Just as the description says, Smooth highs with thick tight mids and lows. Really brought a good sounding amp to life. No more spikey highs and loose lows and mids. I could not be more satisfied.
Pulled that ECC83WA from my Blackstar S1 (stock tube) and plugged into V1 Fender Blues Deluxe and ..... WOW !!!
All there! Relaxed cleans and fat crunch in drive mode. A new dimension compared to that stock Fender 12AX7WA tube.
Would give 6 stars if possible. Thanks TAD!
Exactly as TAD says.
I got this one for my 5e3 kit. Having other ECC83 and 12AX7 at home, I did a round-up looking for the best match, but finally came back to the TAD ECC83WA. It provides the sweetest tone, vivid mids and reduced but very grity distortion that fits perfectly to my tweed. I will definitaly give a try for this tube in my next build.
Note: The highs are getting a bit harsher passed around 80-90% volume...that's for me its maximum sweet zone. Not shure how it sound in high gain amp, but for low gain application, I really recommend it.
v3 and v4 for my princeton reverb reissue and a new life for the amp, all the description TAD gives for this tube is closely true.the right way to make your amp sound like an amp!! very well made and more reliable than nos
Works very well in V2 and V5 (phase inverter) of my marshall JCM800 2205
i just received those tubes matching in pairs at home and put them in my 5021 TL Audio ivory comp.
it's astonished i just couldn't believe that it was my gear!!
the answer is smooth and powerful.it fits perfectly the TL Audio comp and there is nothin' more to add.
just one thing: the TAD tube amp team is the most professionnal and relable i know .and i would not buy anywhere else.you can always ask what you want and get a very very reliable answer.
more than this the people there are very nice and gentle.and that's not only business.they are whta you get!! which is becoming very rare in music business!!!
thanks for all
