I agree, sometimes glue can come off inside the base or a piece of glass can brake off during production.

In case of broken glass it's best to shake the tube to make sure the lose glass goes to the bottom and doesn't touch the elements.

 

However it's very important to test the tubes before you use them in your amp to make sure there are no shorts or leakages.

6CG7 to 6SN7 so I can use the 6SN7 in my amp without changing the socket out.

The 6CG7/6FQ7 is the 9pin version of the 6SN7.

 

All you need is a 6CG7 to 6SN7 adapter.

Hi,I'm wondering if the blanced output of Super 7 can catch up with the ZDSE when I want to drive the LCD2 and Hd800. Thank you.

I just tried a NU 6F8G in my ECBA and am loving it.  With Royal Princess 300b's and Genelex rectifiers I am getting holographic soundstaging and excellent tone.

I found it at one point but I can't seem to find out anymore, someone had a post that listed the characteristics of some common brand s of tube, does any one know each from the top of their heads? from my short research, ts and Sylvania are bright and rcas are dark. looking for something to pair with dt880s, so forward mids are a plus. thx

I would not rule out tubes based on such broad generalizations.  I love Sylvania tubes with my DT880s, they do not add to the treble presence bump at all but rather bring up the range below it just a hint giving vocals fantastic clarity.

I'm not ruling out, but rather focusing in on an area to start, what to expect and look for, etc. So far, my experience in 6sn7s is the darkvoice stock and 4 gtbs that I got off eBay in a lot auction for cheap. I feel that I got some nice 6as7s so looking to find a good pairing.

The one with the clear glass and round plate?  How is the sound?  any similarity to the TS round plate?

It's one of Craig's favourites driver.

 

George I recommend the Raytheon 6F8G round plates too.

There are more than one type of TS round plates in the 6F8G bottle, I have posted photos earlier on.

Thanks Stavros, I have a Ken Rad with same construction but haven't seen a Raytheon yet.  Do they sound the same?
