    so I received the tubes and was fucked up!:wallbash:
    turned out the tubes were ecc83 and not the ecc83s. the shop that I bought to said that there was a mistake on giving me the price, the price they gave me was for the ecc83 (what he told on the phone was ecc83s that douchebag... :mad:) and the price is 2 or 3 times more expensive than the ecc83 so im stuck with this :realmad:!!!

    please tell me these tubes are worthy for the tone im looking for smooth and rich harmonics and break down the differences and similarities on the two tubes... oh tungsol reissue is on the v1.

    These tubes only no other tubes pls.

    edit: I ment ecc83s gold pin

    I think you'd be best of trying them first, before looking for replacements immediately. I've used JJ ECC83's (not sure if they were "S") in the past and they worked very well. I too am after a very smooth tone.
