For those unsure of where to spend some cash on:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310939825074?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

 

WE 421A.

 

BTW:  Does anyone know if a 6082 tube might work in a DV 337?  Major difference with the 6080 as far as I see is the higher heater voltage.

If i still had my 337 i would jump on that..but that price is a bit weird...those tubes normall go for at least 200usd..hope they are the real thing!

its an auction in progress, typically the price will go upto $250-350 by end of bidding, if someone gets a pair for 200 that's a very very good price.

beautiful  tubes, though when i had them, i found them to be pretty much identical to 5998. i couldn't A/B them and find any real difference.

I like the graphite 6080WB's.  Already own 2 'Hytron' rebrands and 6080-wise they're my preferred tubes.  Generally I prefer 6AS7G for the sound, with the 5998 at the top of my list (the GEC's are just too expensive), then follow quite some other tubes and then the first 6080.  Even the Svetlana's score better than the average 6080.  But the one exception are these graphite column Hytrons, those I'd rank just behind the 5998.  Just imo of course and keep in mind I'm a noob in tubes.  Had been on the lookout for some more graphite but they're hard to find and the Bendix branded ones fetch extreme prices.

 

Looking forward to adding these to the collection.

 

If anyone's still looking, there are some 421's being auctioned.  Good looking tubes but I suspect they'll fetch a pretty penny and afaik they're basically the same as a 5998.

These went for $530 US... I thought it would go a lot higher. Whoever won it could prob make a nice profit selling them in pairs

See above:  they're not 5998's and the seller knew so imo.  I thought it fishy because he didn't show a closeup of the plates (far as I know all TS 5998 have the 'domino' plate structure.  So I sent a mail and asked, fort back a fuzzy response about it being some kind of military batch 5998-->sounded like BS to me.  Ultra here thinks the 5998 and TS designation have been added later and he's forgotten more about these tubes than most here know about 'em.  And I don't have them on my screen right now but there was something off with the date codes (number starting wit 322, the last digit indicates the shift number and I recall seeing something was off there).

 

If a deal looks too good to be true...I pity the poor guy who purchased them.

post #1153 of 1697
yeah definitely not 5998s...

4. Rectangular Plates with Steel Rods

5. Slotted Plates Curved Face with Copper Grid Rods

6. Slotted Plates with Curved Slot and Curved Face. 

 

Any idea which these are? The plates don't seem graphite to me and appear different than the other variants I've seen.
