Would this be a good tube for a Marshall VS8040? It was made in 1994 still has the original tube. Thanks!

Tube selection is highly subjective and although some would consider this a great tube for that amp, other may not feel that to be true. We suggest referring to our 12AX7 comparison of current made tubes: https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech-corner/12ax7-comparison-current-made-tubes
Ok, yes i understand there are a lot of different opinions out there. I am not quite sure which to select from the comparison chart because the valve state amp is not a full tube amp. I assume it will not make as big of a difference changing out a tube on the valve state. I just want to buy a new tube for it a looking for the best "Marshall" tone i can get. If you recommend a tube for me I will not be disappointed. I really am new to the "tube" world. Thanks
It may possibly make even more of a difference in your amp, as it is the only tube in the amp. The only true way to find out which tube you like the best is to try different ones out. People tend to really like this tube in Marshall amps, so this may not be a bad place to start.

This would be a great choice if you wanted to add some British flavor to your amp.
Can I get these with the triodes matched?
Asked by Anonymous on May 18th, 2017.
These are not offered with matched triodes and this is an option we do not offer. On the other hand, the Genalex Gold Lion and Tube Amp Doctor (TAD) 12AX7's are balanced at the factory.

Will this give me better High Gain, than JJ EC803s on my Micro Terror?
Asked by Anonymous on August 19th, 2018.
According to both the "12AX7 Comparison of Current Made Tubes" chart and the product review above, these shine in high gain applications. Keep in mind, tube tone is subjective and can not guarantee you will have the same experience.
will this sound good in a Marshall dsl 40c combo amp? In the V1 position? Thanks
