For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 30

post #436 of 1474
I read a review concerning 6as7g's that those as the best..even better then 5998's or bendix 6080wb with those slotted graphite blocks..unluckily i have the 6080wb solid graphite blocked type and allthough these are one of the best i read biggrin.gif the slotted ones are more full bodied and more inherent in sound..

Thats why the price is so high..i was looking also at same ebay..but omg that price! biggrin.gif

The hierargy according to him is (if my memory is right):

Tier 1
WE 421A
5998

Tier 2
6080wb slotted graphite (tung sol/bendix branded)
6080wb solid graphite (chatham branded)
Sylivania's (forgot model sorry)

Tier 3
6080wb black blocks ( raytheon)

And so and so on

Am sure he didnt test all tubes..as he didnt mention my svetlana's but those i can remember
L
Check for review western electric A421 tubes on google and i believe u will find this review easy..if ur interested

Once again..those are not my findings..hope to receive my NOS NIB pair 5998's soon (also very expensive!) and my cheaply rca 5693 reds wink.gif..i am really curious how they will sound compared to my svetlana and the bendix together with my tung sol gt mesh plates

Ur the specialist..does it has to do with the 421a being some kind of rebranded/ improved 5998? I read that also somewhere i think..

Pls explain..we are all ears..as seriously..those prices are absurd.. biggrin.gif

Thanks! wink.gif

I love my Chathams, too bad I can't find a new good nos pair for a reasonable price
post #448 of 1474
What's reasonable? There is one on eBay right now for $20...
post #449 of 1474
Yes I saw, but I'd like tobuy a pair. I think 20 for 1 is still reasonable. But ebay...
post #450 of 1474

There is one less there now.  Thanks for the heads-up Skylab.  gs1000.gif
