    Is the other side of the tube the treble booster Capn? That's what I was guessing looking at it.

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!

    Thanks to all for the clarifications. Based on this info, what kind of tube would be good for this slot? I replaced the original fender 7025 with a Russian groove tube 12ax7. Not sure I'm liking the sound of either one when I use the gain boost. It's sounds quite harsh.

    Try an Electro-Harmonix 12AX7.

    According to the schematic, the gain and treble boost both use the same side of the V5 tube (no A or B designation indicated like the others).

    However, the treble boost switch also adds a capacitor/resistor network (shown next to the switch) to alter the output (tone).
