It's actually an Australian VT-231 with smooth Black Plates.

Very strong bass, has some similarities with the Melz 1578, but better sound overall.

Yes it does!

If you think that Bruno was going to re solder the electrodes and rebase the tube.

 

Two of them were cut flush so he couldn't, just one of these things.

Here is an unusual (to me) box for a VT-231

Stavros, that tube is one of my favorites, just below the TS BGRPs.

David for $17.86 incl shipping may prove a good buy.

Have to wait to see what it sounds like.

What is it? A RCA Grey Glass?

I hope so.

 

Like David mentioned, this is one of my all time favourite tubes together with the Sylvania 6SN7W Black Base.

The RCA 6F8G Grey Glass is just as good if not better.

Sylvania Jan-Chs 6SN7GT 1952.

 

I don't like its thick and warm sound, may be I'm used to airy sounding Sylvania.

Which Sylvania are you comparing it to?

Audio-Omega, I like warm. I'll be happy to take 'em off you if you have a pair ;)
