I ended up getting a pair of the 310 equiv (10j12s) from Russia. Just arrived this past Fri. All in all only took about 8 days to get hear,.. was expecting twice that long. Anywho, for a NOS ('early60's) tested and matched pair (w/results) $80 shipped. Sonically a lil different than the stock Shuguang 310's. Can't quite put my finger on it yet but I also haven't had a lot of time to critically listen yet either Could live happily w/either. I certainly like the price of the Russians! Def. quality difference over the Shuguangs (for the better).
In regards to the other tubes, I'm currently running Genelex Gold Lion 300B's and Psvane 845 B's (new version w/out the top mica for stability). I immediately felt like the P845B's sounded a little better than the stock 845. I also preferred the GL300B's,.. they are touch less microphonic than the TJ mesh,... However at lower volumes where the room noise does not excite those microphonics it a toss up between the 2. The TJ's are a little more airey, the GL's a lil more solid or grounded sounding. AX7 wise, I really like 5751's in that spot. Just a good, smooth and very quiet tube. Also their slightly lower gain (over a AX7) helps a tad with the high sensitivity of the amp design.
