For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 58

post #856 of 1446

Did Raytheon make any 6080WB solid graphite plates?  I have one in my collection but suspect from its construction that it is a rebranded Bendix.

I thought there where only two kinds of those (with same high soundquality).. slotted graphite colums and the ones with solid graphite colums????
I had the bendix 6080wb with solid graphite colums on my 337...they sounded heavenly...HEAVY buggers though!.. Lolz.

I've seen three, slotted cross, solid cross, and a solid curved (referred to as just solid). What's the 4th rosgr? smily_headphones1.gif

That's how I've got them classed, and i have not taken into account the different coolers to keep things simple:

 

1. Triangular Plates with Copper Rods.

2. Holed Plates with Copper Rods

3. Holed Plates with Steel Rods

4. Rectangular Plates with Steel Rods

Oh yeah that thing, ive read through it a few times, its a good read.

Except this one says that the we421a is better than 5998, something which is still debated.

Oh slotted graphites, ok i didnt see that before... Thanks.

I haven't heard all those tubes but I wouldn't put them in that position. personal preference guys, listen first, don't just accept ;)

Yess..he mentions that slotted and solid graphite plates sound same and are the best soundin kind..check this out also:

Quotes from tubemaze about thesetubes:


http://www.tubemaze.info/bendix-jan-6080/#comments

I have the 6080wb with the solid graphite colums..i have some closeup pics of them on my profile. biggrin.gif

Funny is that what first guy says is exactly how i experienced it on my 337..and yes i paid almost same price for my NOS matched pair also as i did for the matched NOS pair of 5998 which i also had

Just for the record..i found out that every tube amp reacts differently on tubes..it could be that on amp A a we421a sounds better then a 5998 as on amp B.. Or doesnt sound differently at all...Eventhough its same tube!
