Thanks Shaffer. That's my consolation for missing out on the 5998. :)

Don't worry I picked up a nice Chatham 5998 from an Oz seller for $50 six weeks back they pop up from time to time

Congrats on the Mullards I was thinking about those myself , they sound very similar to the GEC 6080 in my amp

From the pictures I think they were sold to the seller you bought them from by a guy in Cyprus who has quite a large stock of British tubes

I purchased one GEC CV5008 (6080) and one Mullard CV2984 from him recently , both are fine tubes with no noise problems

I got mine from an eBay seller from Oz. I saw the similar pair from the seller from Cypress. $56 vs $70 a pair quite a difference. Both new as advertised. Plus I don't have to pay shipping. :)

 

GEC CV5008 (6080) ...haven't seen those before. Collector's item I think.

 

Chatham 5998 for $50...congrats :)

EBay calls himself mcchanson sells 5998 6as7g and 6520 regularly , ships out of Sydney

Actually paid $49 plus $10 postage

 

@UntilThen 

I think CV5008 is just the early common valve code GEC used before it changed to CV2984 but it was a lucky find in perfect condition in original box

I noticed the background in the picture of the Mullards you bought is the same as the background in the pictures of the tubes I bought from Cyprus
