I posted this in the Marshall Forum and thought I would post it here as well since I haven't seen any real posts about it online and decided I would be the vocal on the subject.
I ordered a Gold Lion EL84 and a Gold Lion 12AX7 for the V1 position (Non gold pin version).
I was originally running a JJEL84 and a JJ12AX7 in V1.
I received the tubes yesterday in the mail. I got them through Antique Electronic Supply. I played through the amp before switching to the new tubes for reference and I can say there is a difference in tone. The amp seems warmer sounding , smooth and more alive to my ears. I really don't have anything negative to say about them. I just hope they hold up and don't fail. Currently I am using a V30 loaded 4x12. I hope this helps someone else to build up their confidence in making the purchase. They are great tubes imho.
