I wouldn't call it crap, but I think communication is the problem.  But yes, not up to western standards.

I just put in a new nos pair of EF80 by Mullard (1962) I had gotten a while back

 

http://www.r-type.org/articles/art-019.htm

 

They blow the Telefunken EF80 away, by far. much more musical and less sharp and aggressive. Perfection with those Chatham 6AS7G

Good question hmmm.... was something about 500$ but my amp still is a open project so I really stopped counting, could be 700$ or maybe more a lot has changed over the year. I have some ideas for future upgrades I would like to experiment with CCS as a anode load instead the resistor, also change the way how the amp input stage is coupling to the output stage (org 339 is DC coupling) this will require god damn good capacitors otherwise it will not make sense and couple cosmetic modifications which allow me to adjust the optimal bias for the various driver tube I have.

No I can't but I'm always willing to help, not only me btw, if someone has any DIY skills and basic knowledge of electronics and would like to modify or fix your amplifier just ask.wink.gif

Hi guys,

 

Does anyone know where I can find an adapter for 6SJ7 to EF80?

 

I have found this on ebay, but not sure if it's the right one, http://www.ebay.com/itm/6SN7-6SL7-to-12AU7-12AX7-tube-adapter-adaptor-socket-converter-brand-new-1-piece-/151094591086?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item232df07e6e

 

Kind regards

You want to go the other way around? For what amp if I may ask?

Me? I am wanting to have a listen to 6AS7 with EF80s on the 339.

post #1961 of 2590

Oh you want the regular adapter, I figured you had an EF80 based amp and wanted to try 6SJ7

You can get the adapters from Lafigaro itself, just email yuking

I love those mullard! Very warm and full bodied sound. perfect with the wester 6AS7G! But the EF800 telefunken and a nice grit to it, and such dynamics... Love both.
