Tube rolling LTA MZ3


hi,
wondering if anybody has done any tube rolling with a LTA preamp? Just got one, my sickness immediately makes me wonder if I can make it even better! Anybody have ideas on weather the 12sn7 or 12at7 position would have the most influence on sound?  For me, (in my system, my ears) this pre is an upgrade from Pass Labs XP12. So much more dynamic and engaging.
thanks for any perspective, Ted

Yes. I found the stock genelex 12at7s a bit grainy compared to the mullards I have in there now (cv4024). Also RCA 12sn7s from Brent jessee (not expensive) made an improvement too but I’m still evaluating that.
modern day chinese or russian small signal tubes are often quite bright and strident compared to old stock counterparts from usa europe or japan
You can also use the 6SN7 but make sure you move the jumper.

LTA does include NOS tubes with their full size Microzotl preamp and they are usually GE or RCA. I found these tubes sound great and can be found without taking out a second mortgage.

From my rolling, the circuit was far more sensitive to the 12at7 than the 12sn7 and the stock small tubes exhibit glare.
