Why upgrade to PM Guitar Tubes?
Like guitar strings, tubes should be considered a consumable item! When it comes to amplifier maintenance, some people are content to change their tubes when the existing set have burnt out -but this can cause damage and additional wear to other components.
In order to avoid your tone becoming muddy and lifeless (unless that is what you are aiming for!) and to keep your amp running at its best you need to replace your tubes regularly. PM recommends replacing tubes at least every two years; the more often and aggressively you play, the faster your tubes will wear out.
The PM range was created to simplify re-valving an amp. We have picked what we believe to be the best sounding and most reliable valves from current production.
The standard in preamp tubes, the PM 12AX7HG is a great all around preamp tube but built for high gain. With super tight lows and rich mids, this tube also has not only great dynamic response and low noise but aggressive high gain and punchy tone to cut through the mix. Focused mid-range, matched triode and improved grid resonance. The single most important part of your signal chain, these 12AX7 preamp tubes are built to the highest standards and are at the heart of your amp. These ship 1 to a box. Typically used to replace only gain channel tubes.
