Selected and recommended for guitar amps to smoothen up the tone or for HiFi to shape the body of sound more to “that” tube tone. Best for jazzy and thick clean as well as for vintage bass response. Recommended for all positions in amps with medium gain level or High-Gain Amps for V2+ positions. As for V1 in general but especially for higher gain amps or phono/audio-amps, we recommend the RT030 7025/E83CC Highgrade, T-7025-HG-TAD.
