Good evening everyone,

 

I have a question about buying tubes.  I have looked at audiogon and ebay and am wondering are these an ok place to buy tubes from or is it just way better to buy stuff from a actually tube dealer?  I am really new to this idea of tubes so just wanted to get some feedback before I bite the bullet on purchasing upgrade tubes for my stock WA2.  Also can a bad tube hurt the amp or does the tube just stop working?  In general is there a way to see if a tube is bad if you don't have a tube tester? 

Thank you all for any help you can offer

I bought 2 pairs from Billington Export a month ago. Listed as  EZ80 Mullard Mazda Grade One Tube. I would have been happy with either, They shipped D getter Mullards. Grade 1 seems to mean reboxed, no sign of use.

Does anyone know how the Tung Sol 6As7G sounds in this amp?
post #126 of 388
Very, very good. the TungSol 6AS7G is one of the best, IMO.

Thanks Skylab. So next ? is.... Do you know what I should pay for a matched pair new to rolling tubes dont wanna over pay.

post #128 of 388
That varies widely. A quad just sold on EBay for $71. I thought that way cheap. They tend to do for about $50 a pair or so (I mean Tung Sol's specifically).

yeah I just won those on ebay my gut said that was a good price thanks so much for the info I cannot wait to get some different tubes

little off topic as far as the WA2 goes but anyone know a good 12ax7 tube, need them for my phono stage and I have no idea about this tube. Something that has very little noise and detailed mids and highs is what I am looking for. Dont wanna spend more than 80$ for a pair.

My favourites are NOS Sylvania gray plate triple micas from the 1950s-1960s. The GE 5 Star NOS is also very good. For the current still in production tubes, my favourite (by far) is the Genalex Gold Lion.

 

Now back to your regularly scheduled program...
