Tung Sol did make a 6080. I don't recall having heard one but it should sound different from the GE.

The standard Tung Sol6-80 is one of the better ones, the graphite ones are better again up there with the GECs 6080.

But Chatam do not is a Tungsol subdivision ? The Chatam factory address is the same of Tungsol.
I read some literature about Chatam and in this the Chatam evento is a Tungsol brand.

Chatham Electronics began as a separate company, but was then purchased by Tung Sol. Tung Sol operated it as a separate division for a period of time, but eventually changed to only using the Tung Sol name.

Them the Chatam 6080 and 6080WA do not have nothing especial in the sound ?
Have a GE 6080 sound, per example ?
post #1329 of 3825

I personally find the GE 6080 not to sound that good. The metal base Chatham 6080WA sound quite nice, just like the Thomson ones

Bass is good, but my Chatham 6AS7's had better impact... these seem cleaner, and airier... and have a slighter wider sound stage then the Chatham's but with less depth.

 

I just switched to my HD800 and they seem to prefer the Chatham's, my RS1 paired better with the Thomson-CSF... it a good tube so far.

If you are looking for a NOS NIB pair of 2399 or 6520 tubes check out the "For Sale" threads. Recently purchased from Skylab. 6520 have 6AS7G style plates.

Selling for price of purchase

Oh. Also have a matched pair of NOS NIB Tung Sol 7802WB graphite plate.

Cheers

You want to watch your amp with the 6520...the heater draws 5A, which is about double what a normal 6080 or 6AS7 requires.  Check if your power supply and other components can take it or court disaster.  That being said, I've a pair on order, curious to see how they'll sound.
