5687, 7044 tube opinions?

I am going to purchase some tubes to try in my Manley Snapper amps. Any suggestions? I am using the stock GE7044 which sound good. I have used the Bendix 6900 tubes in the past in CDPer but was wondering if anything comes close in sound but not in price? Thanks.
My Steelhead came with 7044's but I'm now running the 7119 which I prefer. You might try it in your Snappers.
Thanks I will hunt some down. Any specific brand?
