And that's very cheap for Bendix 6080WB's.

Last I checked the slotted columns 6080wbs are gone.  Damn head-fi members...

Thanks Contrails - Waiting for a pair to arrive.

aww slotted columns gone?

 

i'll wait for an expensive pair to pop up on ebay in the future then lol. or live with the GEC 6AS7G in the meantime, which should still be better :D

To me all graphite plates are good and worth considering.

 

In some systems and and for my taste they are as good if not better than the GEC and WE421 tubes.

Haha, only reveal it after you have had your own share first.

Are 6AS7G and 6SL7 compatible? Also uncertain about ECC33 here.
post #880 of 1528
No, they are not compatible. They are both double triodes with the same pin configuration but they have very, very different operating points. You could plug a 6SL7 into some amps calling for a 6AS7 and it will not explode, but it will not work as designed.

I have identified another Bendix variant:

 

5. Slotted Plates Curved Face with Copper Grid Rods

Took a $20.00 gamble on an unmarked slotted square graphite plate 6080WB - eBay seller stated he couldn't verify whether or not the tube would work. 

 

It doesn't - Tube tester revealed a short on the filament pin.  Not happy, but at least it's not megabucks down the tube.

 

Anyway - reason for the post.  The getter flash is milky white.  Do you think there is a relationship between the filament short and this?

 

Cheers and thanks

Paid $15.00 for a single Tung Sol 6AS7G not expecting much compared to the others in the family I have tried.  Hmm... pleasantly supplied.  I assume that Chatham and Tung Sol 6AS7G are the same construction with just a different branding?  Anyone know a good source for these tubes?

 

Thanks!
