    TAD makes a great new production 7025WA in case you want a backup.

    I got some 7025's 'preferred series' from thetubestore.com
    Good tube, if you dont want to pay $40+ for the rebranded TAD.

    Apparently both tubes are supposed to be a modern production of an old Mullard 7025. The TAD is $48 on thetubestore, though. I wouldn't be surprised if they're actually the same tube... they both mention the 'extra thick mica spacers'

    Interesting. They're 36.75 @ mojotone. 47.95 @ thetubestore. 21.90 (euros) on the TAD website. Looking again, I did find a few sources selling them for ~$20
    I wonder why tubestore is marking them up so high. Their other production tubes are extremely reasonably priced.

    I get their premium/selected ones (whatever that means) on Amazon for $20.

    Nice! Glad this mystery was solved and you can enjoy a healthy robust PR tone.

    What's wrong with keeping the treble at 3 or 4? I do it all the time, depending on the room and the volume I'm playing at. In the end, I don't worry about the 'numbers' - they're meaningless. Just turn the knobs until it sounds good :) If no amount of knob turning yields a good tone, then it's time to worry.

    There's nothing wrong with leaving the treble control at 2 or 3 but I prefer having the control have more range.

    Another thing, maybe try turning the tone down on the guitar itself?

    When i had the two i had ...wish i still had them ...i would turn the treble down to 3 or 4 for bedroom practice...when i played out id have to turn treble up.....i know there is a science why. Maybe someone can elaborate
