ECC-83 preamp tube...which brand is good?

I'm going to change the preamp tube (4 years old... ) in my Valvestate. It's a ECC-83. Some advices on which brand/type to choose? Thanks!

I run a Telefunken and a Mullard in the first two stages of my TBR. Too fun.

FWIW,

Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 in my 2112 SGS - much better then the cruddy Penta Labs tubes that came with the unit. Much chunk and sweet scream.
