post #1066 of 1446

Have you tried them?

post #1067 of 1446

Nope, I was waiting for your try to decide if I buy some or not (no hurry).

Thomson and these era French tubes seem very smart and well put together. Mine are here but also untested atm.

Quiet a few of the Thomson French surplus tubes on ebay at the moment I am tempted to snag one to try with the my BHCrack

 Typing "6080 Thomson" in the google or ebay search box normally works for me :wink_face:

Got it, the weird thing is they didn't show up in my automatic daily searches so I figured the title was something special

I got my pair two weeks ago but I've only put less than 20 hours on them. Hence I can't really comment on how they sound, but they are enjoyable. I'd consider them a step above the Tung Sol 6AS7 I guess.

On a somewhat related note, the stock boxes are huge. You could probably fit the 596 inside quite snugly.

Any chance of a close up pic of the plate structure?

Thanks I see what you mean about the box!

I was recently trying to smooth out the treble harshness on my HE-400/DV336SE without moving EQ..here is the recipe (I recently bought two of this tubes and I'm glad I did)

6080 GE/AMPEREX (five star-red)

​tube is quieter then my other power tubes but with a little extra gain this tube is a pleasure via 400s  (very detailed/punchy bass )

Three tube combination Mullard ECC85/6AQ8 (T1) +6080 GE/Amperex for power +6SN7GTB

5998 came in from vacuumtubes yesterday. the test result sticker on the box show as

 

gm - 13.25 / 13.55             85%

plate current - 71.1 / 66.4      70%

brand - Tung Sol

construction - Black Plate

 

i'm guessing those are indeed NOS levels like their site says? i don't know much about testing tubes or reading tube test results. i'm a happy guy with the 5998 aside from being a little bit concerned about the test sticker result

I was expecting little improvement over Chatham 2399 but didn't expect that much ...just wow,the detail clarity ..it just does everything right 

P.S. I cleaned the pins with 5% clear vinegar (yes that's the one from ebay)
