My recent bought 6H13C Russian tubes just arrived, I tried on all of my 6AS7G based amps but these damn things just won't fit, impossible fit. I'm puzzled

Won't fit how? Shouldn't be a problem, although I confess I don't really care for those Russians much.

I just got curious and wanted to give them a listen, but that's not going to happen...

Seems like the pins just are too fart apart, impossible to get into the Crack, WA2 or 339. I can wiggle all I want, they're not going in.

Not worth wrecking your tube sockets for, that's for certain.

Do you have any socket savers?

 

Try polishing them down with a non metal nail file.

Do socke savers always have to be screwed fix?

Not all of them, Glenn makes them for me.

 

The ones I use are like this:

With all the Plug & Play I have going, I'd best order some before I displace a socket.

I never had trouble with the Russia 6H13C tubes fitting in with the tube sockets. I would agree to get socket savers and I have both types, one that you can screw in like for tube testers.

My socket savers arrived and guess what, the russian tubes fit without any problem. I'm even more puzzled now. Havent listened to them yet though.

The amps look horrible with the socket savers but I'd rather wear out the savers than the amps socket wink.gif

I'm using =C= in my new to me WA3. Sounds far better than the run of the mill 6080, quiet, dynamic, makes me enjoy the music vs listening to the tubes.

Looking for a good price on some TS 5998s, to stock up. Are these any good? http://www.ebay.com/itm/6080-5998-WE-421-Power-Audio-Tube-FREE-SHIP-US-48-/190672251017?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item2c64f3a889

 

Seem rather cheap, so I'm not sure they are... or even legit. Thanks!

post #465 of 1570

Those aren't 5998's.

 

Those are regular 6080's...
