when the tube becomes burning hot won't that emit a smell ?

Some tubes do that even without nail polish. I never noticed extra smell from fixing a tube

Only for a short period on the first use.

Gents, any feedback on Thomson/CSF 6080 ?

post #1178 of 3799

I love the sound, very clear and detailed with good bass. But they run quite warm

post #1179 of 3799

Thanks.

I have also noticed those straight bottle + metal base run hot.

I don't have them here (the curse of living in 2 locations) but I own both.  The Thomsons I can't say anything about except that I might have been ripped on that purchase as both tubes sound quiet to the point of being virtually inaudible on my 337 with volume maxed out.  The strange thing is that it's definitely BOTH tubes exhibiting this behaviour.  Guess they're just defective although they do look NOS and I took care to clean the pins etc.  So no help there I'm afraid.

 

The CSF 6080S (see p. 75 for a couple of bad pics I snapped) sounds like a good quality, refined 6080 to me.  I don't have my notes but recall a detailed sound, quite pleasing.  Not the same level as the graphite 6080WB's though but certainly not bad.  Let me put it this way:  I generally prefer 6AS7G over 6080 tubes but as far as the latter go the CSF is certainly not bad and worth getting if the price is normal.

Thank you for your addition !

This is an odd bug you're experiencing with Thomsons...

I  fixed some of my wobbly tube with clear nail polish and 50/50 mixture of water and carpenter's glue both works well .THANKS GUYS!

Any current production tubes? I'm beggining my STEM project and I'm designing an amp with switchable output tubes, and I know for OTL operation, the 6AS7G has a low Zout as a cathode follower, but I don't want to use it if I can't get any current production tubes.

PS. I also use 6080's in my Crack and another OTL I am about to build
post #1184 of 3799
There are no current production 6AS7 type tubes. But you can buy literally HUNDREDS of the vintage Russian equivalents. If lack of supply is a concern, I wouldn't worry.

Thanks, interesting though considering their popularity in OTL's that noone has decided to produce new tubes.
