Tubes in VTL 2.5 preamp

Anyone found the best combination of replacement tubes for
the stock tubes in their VTL 2.5? I'm considering the Amperex BB Holland for both 12AT7s and 12AU7s. Any others
I should considered? All answers appreciated. Mark.

There are a couple of VTL TL2.5 threads in the "Tubes" forum.

I think the member's name was "paco" who did some pretty extensive tube rolling. Some recommendations I remember are:

- The Amperex you mentioned.
- Philips miniwatt (made in Holland)
- Mullard NOS (made in UK)

He has some others there as well.

I also have the VTL TL2.5 that I picked up in November and am quite enjoying it. It powers a new Bryston 3BSST and the combo really works well together.

My dealer has some Mullard NOS that I'm thinking of buying ($40.00 ea.)

Have fun.
