Cossor 6SL7GT / Brimar 6SL7GTYGIve me a break Blackmore.
Yes I kept the photo to myself for one whole day before I posted it. I am exhausted. The mail lady did not knock or ring, she left a "delivery notification" pink slip. So I called and they said "Come at 5 o'clock, maybe it will be here." We have had many, many problems with our mail carriers here. SO knowing I am completely disgusted my gf goes and finds the mail lady. This package also took an extra week for some reason.
It is ultra, ultra-clean. It has made unlistenable things very attractive and essentially re-arranged everything. Whether this is accuracy or not it seems to add up to very
low distortion. It has had me thinking very creatively. If I can not explain the sound, I can report on the results.
It's not about mid-range emphasis as much as "where is it going to place the bass". I have heard some tubes hitting very low now, and with presence. It has become a question of where the other tubes are going to place it. The Cossor seems to have extreme accuracy.
I was preparing to tell you I was hearing zero exaggeration of the bass on the Hytron, but this is a totally different level. It's on it's own, but the musicality is still a question. Maybe it will need more some time.
The Brimar meanwhile looks so amazing that I've had to give it a spin tonight !! I can certainly see why you gentlemen like them. Verrry nice
and it is putting the bass in a very warm spot. Incredible tone. I'm just really honored to have these here, and also be able to compare them to the other tubes I have. A real shootout.
The GE '55 Silver Plate from Dennis is still in the lead, but I have yet to check-out the new Tung-Sol and also a darkhorse .... an RCA coin base 6SL7. This should be good.
