I don't think it is an issue. As long as you slip it over and it hangs on you should be fine. That's how mine is.

I got my 596 a few months ago (thanks SO for selling me on it and pointing me in the right direction for acquisition beerchug.gif) but for a number of reasons I won't get into here, I did't actually try it until this weekend.  I know, shame on me, but be assured it was out of my control.  I also got the adapters from Woo for my WA6SE (beautiful piece as always).  I swapped out my EML 274b on saturday and plugged in the adapter and then the 596 on top.  When I connected the external leads, however, I noticed the connection is loose!  Very loose, actually.  I was a bit nervous, as you can probably understand, but I fidgeted with them for a bit until I got what felt like a relatively stable connection.  While standing a bit away from it and half-flinching, half-wincing I fired the WA6SE up.  Lo and behold!  It worked fine.  I let it warm up for a couple of hours and then listened for about 4 more hours.  It was rough going at first, sounding very harsh and fatiguing to say the least.  By the end of the session it was sounding much, much better.  Not up to par with the EML yet but I guess a rugged tube like this one needs some time to break-in.

 

So the question is: are the leads supposed be loose like that?  Even though it worked I am a bit hesitant to try it again until I know this is normal (or not).  Anyone else with the Woo adapters have this issue?  With Keph's adapters?  Greatly appreciate any thoughts from you guys.

 

My own adapter was supplied by 2359glenn - my leads/connections are tight. Not sure how loose the other adapters may feel. Just reached over to pull-twist-bend the leads on the rec - all tight, all good.

Since thrak raised the issue, I'm left wondering if all of the Woo adapters feel the same way and this is normal or not.

He's having this problem with the Woo-596 adapter/connection, not the Glenn made adapter...

Yep...got that.....I would be uncomfortable with a loose connection. (I have enough of those in my head!  tongue.gif ) Seems like the adapter from Glenn will not have that problem....

post #23468 of 30818

My adapter from Glenn attaches securely to the tube's pin. There is good resistance while attaching the pin adapter to the pin on the tube. It feels exactly the same as when I insert a tube into its socket.

And to satisfy my DeOxIt addiction, I hit both male/female ends with a little Red, then Gold liquid love!
