Higher current draw but the total draw is still within the limits of the CT3 transformer. I'm currently using a 6SN7 and had no problems previously with the 12BH7 and E80CC (with speedball). I'm not an expert on the specifics of the circuit design of the Crack but I have done alot of research on the datasheets and the Bottlehead forums regarding the use of the 12BH7/E80CC/6SN7. The extra current draw is within the design limits on the transformer but whether the stock Crack would yield optimal results with the non 12AU7 family of tubes is something else that I could not confirm.
