I'll bring mine to you in person. ;)

I prefer the GZ37.

they're still cheap too! 800 a pair whereas the eml is like 500-550 a pair, i think the extra 250$ is worth it


The 422A will work good in the OTL it can easily handle 350ma output this is as good as

the 3DG4 , 5AU4 , and GZ37.

Who bought the 596?  :eek: It's gone.  Too fast.

Woo is da bomb, isn't it?

 

Besides the sound, I love the look and the build.

So far, after 24 of ownership, I concur.  Now, I just need some good 6SN7...

Where can you use the WE 422A in the WA5LE? I don't see it in the compatibility list.

I believe it's a rectifier, so you can use it instead of the 5U4G tubes.

Yes as well as the picture down below biggrin.gif

Good thing u pointed it out, i guess 422a is indirectly heated, meaning it might not work on the dna strarus, which looks like im gonna be buying.. But itll work on the glenn amp

I think it will work, since I used to use GZ34 black and metal base with the Sonnet.

It will work but not optimally, dna says u need directly heated rectifiers to work properly on stratus.

So 5r4gy series, u52, 5u4g, 5u4gb, maybe 274b (he can test this for me he said), those will work.

Not gz34, gz37, 596, etc

That is too bad, the Sonnet sounded amazing with metal base GZ34...  It may has to do with the 2A3 tube
