Perhaps it's simply different stock. The third mica is often thinner.

Any ideas why the manufacturer  would choose to use 2 opaque ones 

and a clear and transparent one on top?

So they can see through it? very_evil_smiley.gif

Yes, the 3 Mica variants seem to be more balanced from top to bottom sonically.

I prefer their sonics over the 2 Mica variety.


My Jesting with you was all in good fun my only beef at the time was simple I would get 20 private messages asking where they could find the Lorenz that we all love you and I well know these tubes are like needles in a Hay stack if you understood that I had to answer ohhh over 40 people because of your bringing up the Lorenz as if any of us can just go pick them up (quite frustrating)  Not personal I think you are a fine guy.. I just do not like talking about tubes seriously that are just about as rare as a White Tiger. It was all in good fun my friend I am quite interested in your CCa review as well. If I cared to I could get them I know what equipment they were used in so that is one source that people forget about anyway that was a hint... :)

The properties are a little different. There is very clear mica, as in the 1952 Sylvania 6SN7. No plastic would ever be used in a tube, it is way to hot. Mica just works great and is abundant.

In a drawer in my home office. My wife has been instructed that if the house catches on fire and I'm not home, after she makes sure our child and dog are safely outside, to get that tube drawer outside if at all humanly possible.

He's probably been busy with Joe Audio.

I chatted with him recently.  He is working on offering DIY amp products through Joe Audio.  He said he doesn't get much chance to troll the forums but he's doing fine.  I believe he's focusing on solid state amps at first.

Hopefully, he'll announce his DIY stuff here on the forum.
