There are also Mullard metal base GZ34's costing $800.00U.S. +/-, just for the rectifier tube, never mind the whole combo!

Hi, I bought my WA22 from Dubstep Girl last year. It was the unit owned by JC9394 with the following mods.

 

1/ BlackGate NH 220uf/160V x 6

2/ RMG 470Ω resistor X 2

3/ RMG 220KΩ resistors X 4

4/ V-Cap CuTF 0.22uf/300V X 4

5/ BlackGate NH 150uf/350 x 3

6/ Mills MR-200 30.1k resistors x 4

7/ Gold plated Japan made selector 8/ Mundrof Silver Gold 0.5mm &1mm cable

 

The Woo website does not offer these upgrades for the WA22 ? So either these are included in the standard WA22 now or you have to email Jack specifically for these , which one is it , does anyone know ?

post #29554 of 39044

The latter. Email Jack to see what you can throw in, certainly not stock. The above amp could bring you value today... and tomorrow.

Jack don't offer these upgrade anymore and his upgrade parts is not as extensive.  The WA22 is modified personally pieces by pieces by Dannie01, it took him a while to gather all the parts.  This amp actually makes me hold back upgrading to WA5/LE for a long time and I missed it so much.  If my tea tin is not emptied recently with another big purchase and still have all the tubes I used to had, I will bring her right back.

I really love the Woo sound and the WA22/HD800 has been a blast for extended listening sessions. I just haven't been able to use is as much as I thought I would so I am going to put it up for sale on eBay. I thought I would check to see if anyone here was interested before I posted it. Looking for $1800.

 

Thanks, Tom

 

 

Here are the pics the amp...

Nice :eek:. What was you fav Rec +Drv+Pwr tube combo for the HD 800 on the WA 22 ?

post #29558 of 39044

metal based mullard gz34, ts bgrp, and gec 6as7g

post #29559 of 39044

The Gec +TS 6SN7 is also my fav combo for the HD 800 on the Btlhd Crack, guess the Gec + TS works with the HD 800's everywhere. On another note wanted to purchase your TS BGRP's but the GEC pair + WA22 broke the bank. Any chance of buying them next month when my wallet recovers or have you sold them already ?

 

What difference do you find between the TS bgrp vs TS 6F8G ?

I sold the < 1 hour pair already and still have both 6F8G and < 10 hours TSBGRP.  They sound the same to me but the 6SN7 version have darker background and less prone to noise.  They are shipped to my parent's house for storage, if you want them I can have them ship back to me.  With the 6F8G, I can sell you the adapter that is wired for WA22.  The wire are positioned away from the rectifier to prevent it pick up the noise from the rectifier.

I have to ask. What are those two wire things running from the 596's top pins? I remember reading about it somewhere but it slipped my mind.

From the interwebs:

 

"The 596 rectifier was built to handle up to 9000 volts, hence the need for that special adaptor to connect the anodes at the top to the pins at the bottom. If the anodes were connected directly to the pins at the bottom, the high voltage would just arc over."

 

Built for the US AirForce, I believe.  Rated for 60000 feet.:eek:

Just find a plastic base with the same insides as the metal base.  Normally they have DD getters.  They are a much better value.
