    It's this preamp set, http://www.dougstubes.com/preamp-tonekit-12ax7-7.html. I already have the JJ and the Sovtek. Plus, the power tubes he recommended.

    I put those power tubes and the preamp tone kit in my 5153 , sounds killer . At first I kept a Ruby in V2 but when I went over to the red channel there was very quiet ticking sound coming thru the speaker when I wasn't playing so I replaced the Ruby in V2 with a JJ and that ticking sound was gone

    That's pretty interesting stuff to know. Thanks!
