I do...as they came with the WA6 I've received 2 days ago.But the Sylvania that were part of the deal sound better to me.

Next week I should get a SEL Lorenz GZ32 NOS rectifier tube from Germany(early 60's  military) and then I will decide whether I need the Sophia Princess or not!

Knowing myself.....I do need her!frown.gif

To me, I do not think Princess Sophia worth it.

Depending on what genre of music and headphone.  USAF 596, EML 5U4G/274B, or Mullard GZ34 metal base.

I still keep the Princess around, she's a great performer... but if I could only have one it would be the '56 Amperex Bugleboy metal base GZ34, without a doubt.  

 

When I put the 6SE up for sale (soon) I need to decide if I'm going to sell it with all these other rectifiers an tubes or sell them separately... either way it will be a sad day as the 6SE has been an outstanding amp for me.  I'm still trying to convince myself that it wouldn't be too over the top on my desk as an office amp... evil_smiley.gif Then I could keep it.

Don't regret the sale of your 6SE in a few years. That's probably why I still have all of my amps. Then again, I am quite the amp hoarder. After my next amp purchase I really need to visit Dr. Phil. biggrin.gif

Thanks Dubstep Girl, JC, and Silent One for your recommendation.

 

At this time, I am staying away from tubes needing adapters.

 

I have read about 6fd7.  It is high gain, more bass impact, and may cause the amp to hum  confused_face.gif  Currently, other than a few seconds at start up, my WA6 SE is quiet.  Does 6fd7 really induce a hum?  Is that a particular brand 6fd7 that has better affect on sound quality?

 

I have not looked into Mullard GZ34 so far so I will do that.

 

Thanks again.

Once I stepped inside the world of 6SN7 tubes...new frontier! Though, everyone has a different reality and I am speaking to mine.
