i believe Ardilla still owns a WA2, he enjoys a warm, smooth, lush presentation, maybe you can pm him about his favorite combination wink.gif

Do the mullard EZ80s have to be paired with the mullard CV2492?

Your the best dubstepgirl. I'll check on those tubes and maybe send that pm when I get home.

no you can use other EZ 80s, just the mullard tends to be smoother and lusher (some might find it bland), but its one of the most popular ones. some EZ80s can be a little more edgy like EZ81.

Just finished purchasing a nos matched pair of 1958 rca 6as7g's. Hope it gives me that warm lush sound I am after.

NICE

post #25191 of 30805

they are nice tubes, probably one of the best budget tubes out there, warm and tubey sounding, very forgiving of poor recordings.

 

i bought my pair of RCA 6AS7G for 10$ shipped a while ago.

I probably should have put more time in and perhaps found a better deal, but I was too excited. They were a beautiful black plate matched pair. If they sound better and even warmer than the stock pair of 6080's, it will be worth that for sure. After a little more listening to these Tung Sol 7236's - I honestly can't say that I am a big fan of the sound. It just kind of sounds thin, hoping to find the holy grail with these coming in and perhaps some rectifiers after.

yes, the 7236 can be lean sounding. the 5998 is fuller sounding, but still closer to neutral. the RCA 6AS7G is much fuller sounding

I agree with this. That's why I preferred the 7236 on the WA22, but not on the WA2.

The time I tried the 7236 they were very lean sounding for me.

Yea, being someone that loves a warm, lush, full sound from a tube amp.. I was not a fan of those. They weren't cheap either.
