as far as I am aware you just take out the old pre amp tubes and replace with other ones-I have swapped and changed preamp tubes on a few amps and preamps with no hassles.As long as both tubes are the same make when replacing it should be fine and sound good-Just make sure to unplug the amp from the mains.I also use gloves when handling tubes,dont know why but i do!

It is good to use gloves, because the grease from the skin is not good for the tubes that are hot. It may not damage the tube, but it is best to keep the glass clean.
