post #29341 of 39044
Can't find a affordable matched pair yet. Spending too much money on another hobby.
post #29342 of 39044

the metal base is the best GZ34, by a reasonable margin. I would guess that the 1950s fat black base and the 1950s brown base are closer to the original metal base version, and might be worth buying if you want more bang for the buck since they are cheaper. The regular black base GZ34 isn't as good as the metal base, not even close. But it is still a nice tube if you like its cooler more SS aggressive/forward kinda sound.

Can anyone help me selecting the best in terms of warmth (under $100 ones, under $80 is preferable :D) tubes here http://www.vacuumtubes.com/6dj8.html 

 

 

Cheers

the JAN Sylvania 7308 there listed as well as the first Amperex Bugle Boy's listed are good. Maybe even the mullards.

The Amperex Buggle Boys are too expensive for me. I am a complete beginner in tube rolling, don't think it's a good idea to leap ahead into the $100+ territory, let alone the $150 amperex recommended by woo lol. Probably gonna try a pair of the JAN Sylvania 7308, thanks a lot DG!

you might also want to consider the Reflector 6N23P-EV, they are rather commonly available, and while a warm tube, they do have a slight treble peak, kinda a U shaped tube in a way but without recessed mids. They have a ton of bass and are like 50$ a pair or less depending on where you get them.

 

they are similar to the 7308 but with a little more bass and treble.

I kinda hate too much bass, but for $50 a pair its worth a shot. Thanks mate, this is exactly what I need to begin my tube rolling journey.

Which amp do you own? I received 6EW7's with my WA6, and they sound really nice, and can be purchased from Woo. I also am in the process of burning in some Slyvania 6SN7 WGT's which I really like also, but they were $100.00. 

post #29349 of 39044

Frank I, I met with the seller who sold me the 6SN7's, and he gave me new ones, and they are dead silent (so far), hoping they will stay that way, thanks again.

I'm using the WA3, do they use the same drive tube as WA6?

Not sure at all, but I didn't know if you had the WA6. I'm new to the WA6, as well as tube rolling myself, ask DG, she has quite some experience with Woo product.

 

There is a tube compatibility chart on here for Woo, i tried to send you the link, but its located in my bookmarks and I couldn't do it, but I'll also take a look to see if it is compatible according to the chart, give me 5 minutes.

No, sorry, either of the tubes I mentioned I'm using in the WA6 are not compatible with the WA3 according to the chart.
