In my case rolling rectifier tubes make pertty large difference. Easy to tell, most the time.

I mean tube rolling is a must. If I only can chose Sylvania 6SN7WGTA, Russian 6AS7, and few choice of rectifier. WA22 is total wast of money. Yes, there are that much difference.

I already emailed my adapter maker, next shot 12AU7!! since I have Mullard and Brimar CV4003 in stock, what the hell right?

It sucks, I have a EML 5U4G rectifier just died on me. Replaced it with my old generic tube, what a difference. Will have to find another one, it was used when I bought it, don't think it lasted more than 50 hours total. Argh...

That does suck, especially since EML don't transfer warranties to new owners I wonder how many hours the previous user put on it?

Not too sure, but the tube was tested good when I bought it. I'm new to tubes so not too sure all the details. The bottom of the tube does have some kinda white coating all over, I guess a sign of bad tube?

6moons.com had EML factory tour. Every thing is hand made with quality. You are very unlucky I guess.

Yes. I just ordered the 6cg7/6fq7 adapters from Glenn. Anxiously awaiting those. And, of course, I'll be waiting for your impressions on your next tube roll with the 12au7 adapters.

I always have some Mullard and Brimar CV4003 around. I bet a lots of people want to find out about this.

Glenn is good guy sell good stuffs for good price. All my adapters are made by him.

Remember the time Singlepower charged twice the price as glenn for same kind of adapters? People still order them left and right like no tommorrow.
