Post subject:  Power Tube options in Oddblock Octal

Hi Everyone, was just wandering what power tubes people are using in their Oddblock builds?
Last night I had my third TAD KT88STR go up in sparks within the space of about a Year, so I'm thinking it's time to move on to another tube.

Tonally the TAD KT88STR sound pretty great, using the JJ KT88 as a reference point, I'd say the TAD's have better definition in the Highs (great Vocals), deeper Lows (nice as I'm not using subs) and the mids are fairly similar to the JJ. The only problem being reliability (and the price, but I can get them at trade as they're stocked with one of my suppliers, so they cost the same as the JJ's)

Anyone got any nice reliable tubes in their amps that sound better than the JJ's?
