If you want a reference. Here is what replied the Boss :

"Yellow plate has finished using, now do is silver."

 

There were yellow plate two years ago. I wanted to buy some but that's what he replied.

I have enough orders for the 6SJ7WGT mesh plate buy, I have contacted the seller. I'll keep you all posted. If you still want to get it, pm me asap

Here a pair of bendix 6080wb that's ending soon. No bids yet. Price is more than ok

Problem with this pair is that one tube has steel rods (I think) and that tube's top structure is different. And they're from Italy. That's the reason I didn't buy it.

Just to be clear, we're talking about the yellow logo/print vs the silver.  My original 339 was silver, and my new one is yellow (with upgraded components - but not the reference version).  Both use the 6SJ7 conventional wiring.  Maybe something is lost in the translation.  Maybe previously the reference versions were yellow, and now the new standard versions are yellow? All very confusing at this point.

What's wrong with buying something from Italy?

 

Edit: No need to answer :)

oh no don't take it that way. It's the combination of the different tubes and the shipping problems Italian post has

Hmm.. No response from Yuking about purchasing tube adapters. 

 

Any recommendations?

Well, I took the risk on the Bendix and snatched them at asking price. Worst case is I blew 100 eur, have made more costly mistakes and if it pans out I've got 2 great tubes to complement my collection (which is nothing compared to wht most of you guys hve yet growing fst). Seller wasn't too happy about the price they went at, apparently had thought to relist on a different site and wasn't too thrilled when my bidding app posted in the last 3 seconds of the auction. But a deal's a deal and I have 2 weeks to return them if there's really a problem, will be in Europe by then to try them out.

That is really nice of you. Will do.

 

I don't honestly know which adapters I want - I'm using the standard 6AC7 blacks at the moment, I'd like to replace them...

 

any recommendations?
