I've had great results with the new production Mullard CV4004.
How would you characterize them compared to the normal new production Mullard 12AX7s?
I did not get enough at the same gain, so I can't tell yet much of a difference. I think I like the CV4004 better for fuller sound and note blooming, but the MU12AX7 seemed quite similar. I need to get more of these tubes, just normal gain, to make a more accurate side by side comparison.
Most of mine were also low noise low microphonics, and I feel that changed the sonic character somewhat. So I can't really make definitive conclusions yet. I blew up one of my Mullards, which is a bummer.
I will report back probably this summer when I can afford to get more tubes in for taste testing. hehe
