Hi,

   Anyone know who made this IBM 6AS7G?

Bendix 6080 is this the graphite plates? THANKS!

SYLVANIA 6AS7G Made in England Made by?

 

 

 

The Sylvanias are Russian.  I can see the saucer getter.

Also the Bendix look like two slightly different plate types both graphite but one slotted the other may be solid type, may be concern if you need a close match

I thought it was just the opposite of the other side of the 6080 and yes i was trying to see if i can see the saucer thingy but it's hard to see.THANK YOU!

Fascinating...I've never seen Sylvania branded Russian tubes before. I've seen those branded Ampex, Ultron, Mullard, and others, but never Sylvania.

I've even seen them relabeled as Raytheon on eBay.

I'm trying to recoup some of the debt I acrued buying these tubes:

That always is a good giveaway indeed. first time I see them as Sylvania too though

Looking closely at the Sylvania the lettering is inconsistent like it was from a hand made screen or stamp

Also I was not aware of any Sylvania tube plant in England

I would guess these have been made up by someone to get a few more dollars for some common tubes

Well if someone went through the trouble to fake them, they should have branded them Mullard or something more likely to bring in some bucks than Sylvania wink.gif

Neither Mullard nor Brimar made 6AS7Gs.

Sometimes a good deal can be done...if you're lucky.  I purchased some Haltron-labeled 6AS7G's last year.  1 to 3 bucks a tube.  Haltron purchased lots of unbranded tubes from all over the place, mostly western European manufacturers  but sometimes in the US too, occasionally also 'B' grade tubes so you never know for sure what you're going  to get, their only criterion was price.  The tubes I received were actually RCA 6AS7G or a tube that corresponds up to the most minute detail and they sound quite nice, I kept 2 pair and sold the rest (as Haltron, I might add :-).  

 

With the 'Russian' Sylvanias, depending on how much you paid i'd give them a try, you might be surprised.  As someone remarked, they could have stamped on another label and made more profit, it's not like Sylvania are the cream of the crop.

The Russians aren't great tubes, but they are better than mediocre.  They are warm and decently musical.  They have a slight veil to them, but that may be desirable for some really bright and/or clinical headphones.

I do a have  pair of 6H13C so i don't think i will need another one(Russian SYLVANIA?) But these are the two that i would like to buy from Russian Sylvania seller.I cancelled the the Russian Sylvania and Thank You! for pointing out that the 2 Bendix are 2 deferent tube structure.
