I have a few questions and I'm tryin to think of everything so I'll blurt it out:
The 403A looks similar to the 396A, I know they're different tubes but both have the same box and print style. I've heard the 396A was made with no price-point so it's built well, sounds great and will last a long time. My question is, would the 403A be similar in that sense?
Does anyone know how the WE 403A would compare against Tung-Sol JTL-6AK5? From what I can tell they are the same "model" as in that they are compatible with each other, is that correct?
Lastly, would using a WE 396A in a preamp/buffer and then the WE 403A in a tube amp that's connected to the preamp/buffer, would that have any kind of beneficial synergy?
For 6AK5 tubes, is there a better option than the Tung-Sol JTL-6AK5? I realize that tubes can sound different depending on the circuit they're used int but I'm mostly looking for general comments and answers.
