I had that too a bit on my 337.. That was until i got myself these affordable feets and put 4 of them under my 337... Vibration was non existent afterwards..even if u tapped on the case of the amp, it felt like u tapped on something solid!:

Herbie's Tender foots! Dont use ur tube amp without them..hehehe

With me they did wonders... And to my ears sound got more fleshy..bass hits harder... But that can also be placebo effect..but that the microphobic effect got less is a fact..try them..they are really affordable

Thanks, will try something in that area. Sure wanna keep those good sounding tubes and it's really only a problem if the amp is disturbed by movements, foot steps etc.

where exactly Haltron 6AS7G A1834 stacks up on a 6AS7G list ,is $150 to much to pay for it ?

You would need to post a picture of the tube. Haltron is only a rebrander - they didn't make any tubes. So we would need a picture to identify what it actually is.

i think its better, less gain than the TS 5998 though, its the same as any other 6AS7G. 

 

soundwise, i prefer it over the 5998 but the 5998 has a little more bass.

 

of course, the GEC 6AS7G is as good as these tubes get, beautiful warm tube sound with perfect tone and lots of detail and extension on both ends. excellent tube.

Yup that's the real deal GEC alright and $150 would be a good price for one that's tested. It's my favorite 6AS7G variant.

That's the one from ebay :rolleyes:

That price is still going up when it comes to closing time in 17 hours

well the bidding for that haltron 6as7g just expired a few mins ago as i type this. i had my eyes set on it too, but i'm unwilling to spend more than $140 + shipping on it.

Have you received your Thomsons rosgr63 ?

post #1064 of 1528

Hi G600, yes I have a month ago.

The looked as they just came out of the factory, and tested well in my tester.

I never amp tested them as I was busy with some other tubes.

post #1065 of 1528

Yep, I'm sure you do !

 

Glad they arived safely. Indeed they look like new, they were manufactered quite late (I've read in the 80s), and stored carefully.

 

Looking for your amp-test !
