A typical RCA with a flashlight shining behind it.  Seriously, a good RCA branded 6as7G is your best best!

Try the 5998 or the bendix 6080wb graphite slotted colums.. biggrin.gif and When they cool down they tick the same way as a harddriven sportscar when u turn the engine off.. Only a bit slower..i love that sound!

Just bought his last pair... I'll argue many that on my system the 5998 sound close to the top of the WA 2 game..  Now, the mighty 596'ers and company may be a different story which I'm love'n to start the journey.  Please don't confuse the 6as7g to the 5998 tube, they're not the same.

the WA2 doesn't use 596. but gratz on those tubes, first time in over a year i think i've seen a reputable source sell that cheap. i bought 2 for now and i have enough pairs of ts 5998 to last me a while. (a used pair that i use the most, the 2 new ones i just bought, and also a brand new chatham 2399 pair)

Yes, I have both Bendix and TS graphites 6080 (non slotted) and they are both incredible in performance.  I believe the slotted vs. solid only provides a sooner equalization in heat distribution of the graphite plates (a good thing, but not absolutely necessary.)  Yes I love the tink/ pink of heat up and cool down.  The 5998s don't do this!

In my current setup If I had to choose between the two tubes, I would take the 5998 over the graphite(s.)  But I wouldn't want to give up the graphite(s!)

Anyone interested in any of the following tubes?

 

2 x Chatham 2399 - NOS white box

1 x Osram 6AS7G round brown base - NOS NIB (sold)

2 x Mullard 6080WA - NOS NIB

3 x Tung Sol 7236 - NOS white box

2 x Bendix slotted graphite plate 6080WB - NOS white box (1 sold, 1 left)

 

I have purchased about $5,000 of tubes in a few months - Addictive behaviour. As a result, I am taking the SS path for a while.  PM me if you are interested in any. 

 

Cheers!

 

Nathan

Thanks to all of those who have expressed an interest in my tubes.  The remaining items in my treasure trove have been moved to eBay (have sold the amp that uses them).
