Default Re: Marshall Amps

My guitarist son and I did some comparison listening tests with various 12AX7's, we used a locally made amp called Woogie from local music store I believe it was a copy of a JCM800, we swapped only the first preamp valve. The valves we had were all new old stock - Mullard, Australian made Philips Miniwatt, Brimar, RCA, Sovtek and a brand called Ciftie which I think may be French .
I could not pick any difference but that is not surprising I'm not a guitarist, guitarists are a strange breed, my son said there was a difference in the sound, it was not night and day though, they all sounded good, but he thought the Brimar might have sounded the nicest.
