Maybe I have the volume up to high.

btw i decided if glenn amp disappoints, im getting wa2 and wa6-se again, i miss em both
post #28413 of 39040
For T1? The ppl from other thread, said it will be a kick ass amp for T1.biggrin.gif
post #28414 of 39040
well wa2 for t1.

and havent heard that from anyone whos also heard wa2, so im really curious as to what the glenn will sound like with t1
post #28415 of 39040
it seems very promising, i hope i like it since it can use alot of tubes and is also cheaper than wa2

The money you save for the amp can buy more WE422A and WE421A. evil_smiley.gif

i wish, probably will go towards cables for hd 800/t1/he-6 as well as maybe new pads/headband for HD 800.

 

oh of course if i end up keeping glenn amp, a pair of those 6336 and maybe the GEC BL63

 

btw this just arrived 10 mins ago :D

 

 

i want to know if they're any better than 5998, they do seem a little different in construction, the glass is fatter too, and they seem a little nicer overall.

Nice, can never keep up with you on tubes. I will need a renting program from you.

Maybe that's my problem; my amp is super vintage pre-April 17, 2010.

post #28421 of 39040

The 421A bases have different printing. Do you know the years each was manufactured? I like the Western Electric logo on the left base.

post #28422 of 39040

not sure but yeah, i can tell its older, the tube is also slightly bigger.

 

these are probably 60s. 

 

i have a 50s 422A and the domino plates are also grey vs black. i saw some 422A that are 60s and with the darker plates like the 421A here.

 

as far as 421A goes, i think theres also grey plate versions out there.

 

 

from the seller of the 421A pair: date codes are  7913 & 8026.

post #28423 of 39040

I like those domino plates. They just look powerful. Like steel beams with rivets even though they're recessed. Nice purchase, DG!

This is probably a dumb question, but I've been looking at possibly getting the WA2 or WA22, and in terms of the WA22, is it possible use the balanced XLR input with the single ended output?

yes but you would only be using half the amp.

 

balanced source is basically a must. u can use any of the outputs though.
