I recently purchased my first tube amp(fender super champ xd). Ordered online, recieved it and had bad tube rattle. Sent it back and 2nd amp had same problem. Ordered all new tubes(1 pre(12ax7) and 2 power(6v6)). Installed all new tubes and no more rattles!!! Now my question is this: what is the difference between soft(low),medium(middle),and hard(high) choices of tubes when ordering new ones. I bought EH 6v6s because they did not have any options. I wanted to buy the tungsol to match the pre-amp tube i got,but could not find enough info to order the power tubes of the same brand. What is the difference in the 3 choices?

I wish I knew enough about tubes to answer that question. It would save me a couple hundred bucks to have my JCM900 re-tubed when it gets fried. Let us know if you find a good answer for your question.
