Fender Super Champ XD tube swap (Tung-Sol 6V6GT and 12AX7)

I've been running my Fender Super Champ XD with the stock tubes for way too long. The stock tubes were just about to die and generated a lot of noise and hiss. Last week I also started to get some strange volume drop issues.

So, I got some new Tung-Sol tubes (2 x 6V6GT, 1 x 12AX7) yesterday and installed them today. An instant upgrade! Now the amp sounds a bit more brighter and there is more clarity and clean headroom. There's also less noise and hiss. Money well spent!
