Whoa Spoiled! At least you can afford pb&j's. PB is nearly $4 here, so I am stuck eating nothing but eggs. confused_face.gif

You both eat like kings.  Ramen Noodles, Baby!!!

 

When I was in college and Hi Spot had hamburgers for a quarter each, we'd buy 20 and freeze what we didn't eat.redface.gif

 

Back to our regularly scheduled programming...roll, roll, roll your....

So I have some GE's and JJ's from Schiit, as well as some Sylvania's and some RCA 6BQ7A's and these http://www.tubemonger.com/MPs_MINT_NOS_Ei_PCC88_1968_Lorenz_SEL_Falcon_logo_p/801.htm

 

What should I try next, I'm looking to lift a veil wink.gif

 

I would really only like to spend like 120 USD max, maybe I could find something from Brent Jesse?

You could try out the black plates or clear tops. Maybe stretch that budget out a bit more for some Siemens or Mullards.

I've also heard some good results with the Tungsram.

Try these:

 

http://www.audiotubes.com/audtube.htm

 

Scroll down left hand column ,until you see:

6CG7/6FQ7--RCA clear plates-Matched pair

These run $48.00 .. ,I've been using these & the blackplates,for a few months.

 

+1 on Paradoxpers {this man knows his tubes !-his word is Gospel }.. suggestion on the Siemens.,a truly beautiful tube...

Both of these should???,lift any veil

Well, my Mullard CV2493 are putting out a line noise sound, switching them out it goes away. 

I cleaned the tubes with some alcohol and cotton swabs. Any other suggestions to salvage them? frown.gif

Paradoxper,

 

Dont have an answer to your problem...however,I do have a NOS backup pair,made for the Swedish Airforce...if it comes down to that,OK?

I think ,I told you about these tubes.

Let me know..

Yea, I am pretty bummed, so I'll have to see what happens, I highly doubt there is much that can be done. They've got about 800 hours on them.

I guess I might hit you up or look for another pair. bleh. frown.gif

 

Oh and yea, you did tell me about those tubes. I think those are CV2492's which I didn't care for. 

 

This gives me more reason to actually listen to more tubes, which just sit unused. haha

Well,if its any consolation to you,we're all in the same boat.

I feel that way with my Lorenz....I'm almost afraid to use them.

 

So,now you have a good excuse,to buy the.....................MJOLNIR !!!

 

I'll put the cv2493 aside for you..

 

 

Mike
