I never could tell a difference with the rectifiers really

 

 

blindly turning up your amp when its been on a while is a bad idea.

just grabbed a handful of tube.

wasn't pleasant

same here, i dont think rectifiers make a huge difference. i use Tesla 6CA4 (old JJ 6CA4) tubes for my rectifier sounds almost the same as the WA2 stock rectifier (International EZ 80)

 

not to mention, i haven't see that much talk about rectifier tube rolling for WA2, its always power and drive tubes.

I've tried tesla's, mullards and telefunken's and prefer

the telefunkens.  A bit smoother, with deeper bass.

To be fair, none of them sound bad in the WA2, some

just a bit better.

Hibuck....

I am using JJ tubes in my WA4 (2011 version) (ECC82, E80CC, 12AU7, and EZ81). Except for the Russian 6C19, the vintage tubes tend to sound staticky. I think the WA4 is too sensitive because those same tubes are fine in another Woo Amp. The quietest ECC82 tubes are made my Mullard probably from the 50s or 60s. The JJs sound great. Unfortunately the best sounding tube is also the noisiest--the Mullard CV4003. Well at least one of them.

Anyone know who makes Woos enclosures? I mean the base enclosure? Im sure they do a lot of the modifying in house, but someone else probably makes the base chassis.

I've been using a pair of RCA 6DR7 in my 6SE for a few weeks ... been very pleased with them (in combination with a Sophia Princess rectifier).
