esx-1 tubes replacement?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone!

i am a regular at the lowdown forum and i am looking for some advice about the esx-1 (the new electribe sampler from korg). i bought it one week ago. as you may know, it has two 12ax7 tubes. mine has two electroharmonixs, "made in russia". can i replace these tubes, with a better pair? has anyone of you tried this?

thank you very much in advance!

Why do you want to replace them? The Sovtek tubes are actually pretty good. You could get a Groove Tubes tube as well, but a 12AX7 is basically just a preamp. I know some people get all teary-eyed over particular tubes, but you're really just using it to add some warmth, and I doubt you'd hear a massive difference by replacing them with something else.
