For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 124

post #1846 of 1852

Got a pair of these Sylvania labelled 6AS7GA and saw these GEC 6080 CV2984 (post#317) structure looks to be similar  any opinions .

I have both. And they are not the same...  As another headfier put it, The GEC's kick Sylvania's butt big time! :)

And up close, you can see that that they are indeed constructed somewhat differently.

There is bunch of GEC A1834/6as7g curved and straight based listed on ebay UK  by a dealer but be warned you had better be sitting down if you are going to take a look :(.

:blink: 210 GBP... That is far too much imho, even though these come from very old production lines. Most auctions on eBay end with $180 per tube and that's an inflated eBay price already. I recently got two very strong noise-free pairs for € 240 per pair and a single tube for $ 160 (all straight base), and then a single tube with cup base for € 110. But 210 pounds for a single tube, that's almost two pairs of 5998s.

As above the Sylvania would not be the same. However it is a nice sounding tube. I have tried a lot even the TS 7236 and Bendix 6080 Graphite plates and I think it is the nicest in the ones I have tried. It has a warmth and liquid sound that is rare in 6080's. Roll it and enjoy.

In the last week I have decided it will be my tube of choice and plan to buy 13 sets. I have two sets now.
