Oh man, so sorry about your loss. You do have a spare right?

 

But if that's the only damage it took, that is one tough tube. I was expecting the glass to be smashed to smithereens and the plates bent on impact. It looks like the 596 has really rugged glass and internal structure.

Only 3 real demands for 596 so far. Still 7 to go or no 596 at all


Will these work in my WA2? If so, count me in.  I'm new at this tube game and willing to try what ever is good. atsmile.gif

one time i took my sophia out to clean it, and when i pulled it up, it smashed on the shelf on top of it, i was so scared thinking it cracked or broke or something.

 

but nope, nothing, i was shocked at their durability, thought it broke because i hit it pretty hard

 

tubes are very tough to break i think, and the sylvania 7236 looks basically indestructible.

What I may do in the future - collect non-performing Sophia Princess; EML 5U4G; USAF-596 and conduct a "Drop test" into a thin Hat box on a concrete floor. Will increase the height incrementally, Olympic style. If the senders are Stateside, it would be worth the $5 shipping for my amusement... and curiosity.

The trip is not confirmed but know more next week.  Check expedia.com, it looks like only 2.5 hrs flight to HK but will add on another $1K on the ticket price.  eek.gif

How do the electrical characteristics of the 596 compare to a 5U4G or a GZ34?
