Tube Rolling with 6SN7 tubes...?

Which tubes would you guys recommend for a Cary SLP-98 preamp for someone who values vocals the most?

The tighter the vocals, the more tubey the sound, the better for me! I want something dense and that I can sink my teeth into.

Let me know... and the cheaper the tube, the better. Also, let me know of good places to buy the tubes on the 'net.

...and here... that 'N7 reference thread.
If you like the sound of the Sylvania tubes these are both drop ins for the 6sn7s that sound at least as good (I think better) than there 6sn7 counterparts. They can be found for 8-15 bucks.
7N7 and 7AF7 try a few.
I just purchased a set of 4 (er, 5... 1 for backup) of NOS Sylvania 6SN7GTA for the Cary 98.

I'm also going to get a demo of the Rogue 99 preamp and test it in my system later today to see if I can get that "darker" sound. Thanks guys!

i have a preamp that uses 6sn7 in the line stage. i too have been wrestling with generating a particular sonic palette.

i got advice from charles at Vacuum Tube Valley. He sent me many tubes to audition before settling on a 60's tungsol.

unfortunately, based upon my experience, it is necessary to listen to the tubes and not accept the experience of others, who, although well intentioned, don't have your ears or your brain.

find an accomodating dealer and listen. Perhaps Vacuum Tube Vally will work with you. Tubes are not inexpensive, especially certain brands.
