These things are like dogs, right?  I'm letting the new 596 out of his cage and allowing him to see his older brother, but keeping them separated smile.gif

As I noted to David (my boss) earlier today, the connector from woo adaptor fit nicely on top of the 596

My pleasure. They're looking good! How do they sound?

WOW, looking at that list of amps and thinking about what they sounds like.... that's my idea of FUN.

 

 

I've got the WA3 and I'm making myself enjoy it for at least a year before I upgrade. But, it is so 

difficult not to fantasize about what other amps sound like!!  I mean, I really love the sound of this

one, so to think it gets even better is very exciting!

They sound fantastic.  The 596 is the only tube that has matched well to the 6GL7s.  The LCD3's really like the extra power that combination has over the other tubes I've rolled into the 6SE.

I haven't seen any different ones :)

I'm already receiving PM's about getting a new batch of 596 tubes.... but I was actually planning a huge 2399/5998 sale soon...

post #23513 of 29793

Mix and match!

That's the sale I'm interested in. If the 5998-Glass goes "kaboom" or "ka-chink" I'm in BIG trouble!

I know the feeling

I bought two extra pair last winter for that exact same reason.  couldn't sleep at night thinking i might some day have to run my WA2 without 5998's

 

now, almost a year later, i have these extra tubes im sure someone could be enjoying.  I want to sell them, i really do, but then i'd be back where i started.  worrying all the dang time about losing one of them

That's exactly why I have 7 left in my personal stock smily_headphones1.gif

I have 4 and I don't even have an amp that uses them currently.

I'm finding, vacuum tube rigs could benefit from contingency planning.
