For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 103

post #1531 of 1542

Nice find!

There is no printing or etching on the top, just a nice shiny mirror-like getter splash. And nothing on the glass or the base to indicate the original manufacturer. But of course, I don't think there is any doubt... :)

Very nice gibosi looks similar to my fav 6080 , the Bendix 6080 Graphite Plates. Does it sound similar ?

Well, my Electronic Enterprises 6080 is in fact a Bendix 6080 with graphite plates. To the best of my knowledge, no other manufacturer produced these tubes. However, about 10 pages ago, we saw pictures of at least 6 different constructions, I believe. Does anyone know if all these Bendix sound the same? I would guess, probably not....

 

As for me, these are the only Bendix 6080's I have in my possession, so I can't say. Further, I believe my OTL is sitting on Glenn's workbench, not quite ready for prime time, so I can't really say much about how they sound in a proper amp. All I have been able to do is briefly run each tube as a driver to ensure that they light up and play.

such a clean looking handsome tube :P

ah ha I did get a heads up on those tubes but the seller wanted $60 for shipping to the UK! A nice find if your US based.

post #1540 of 1542

$60 to ship to Britain!? That is outrageous! But living in the US, I often see comparable shipping charges from Europe..... :(
