Thank you for your reply and information, I will look into these Tubes/adapters, thanks again.

No problem Joseph. let me know how you go with hit and I would be glad to offer some more suggestions.

Frank, I just looked on eBay and found these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-1950-51-Raytheon-6SN7GT-tubes-Shinny-Black-P-Copper-Grids-Bottom-/360754670040?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item53fea769d8

 

Would I be better off purchasing these tubes, instead of the tubes from Woo, do you know if these are a "better" tube, them=n I can purchase the adapters from Woo?

Obviously I've just gotten into this and would like to understand the differences in tube Build/sound, thank you, Joseph.

OCTAL PREAMP TUBES.  you can also get great advise here on this headfi thread regarding 6SN&. I prefer the tung sol black glass plate 6sn7 but they ruin 325.00 pair but check this out as well.6SN7 Tube Addicts

IMO those Brown Base/ChromeTop WGT Sylvania are much better than the Raytheon.

 The price does not look too bad and the guys feedback is good too. 

 I have some hoc eWestinghouse tubes that are not all that bad either. I got like 5 of them new in the box

Are either of these tubes below, the ones you are talking about? I can't seem to find the Brown Plate. Thank you.

Frank, I will still need to purchase the 9 pin to 8 pin tube adapters before buying these, correct? Thanks, sorry to drive you nuts.

You can buy them now and order the adapter from Woo now and have both close to the same time.

I think DSG and I both suggesed the 6FD7 for tighter bass.  Did you try them?

Frank, thank you, I purchased the tubes from eBay already and I'm waiting for Woo to contact me about the adapters, being I don't see on their site how to order just the adapters without the tubes from them. I'm in Staten, Island N.Y. and the tube seller is in Brooklyn, N.Y. so I should have them very shortly. Thanks for all of your help/suggestions, and I'll let you know how I like them after burn-in time. Thanks again and Happy Holidays, Joseph.

No, I haven't, but I am also going to order them.

Was their a particular brand/year or NOS that I should buy? 

Also would these a direct fit in the WA6, or do I need an adapter? Thanks for the reminder.

Not that I am aware.  Just get a matched pair and see what happens.  Shouldn't be expensive.
