Listening to Keren Ann, Lady Bird, Azure Ray on these p88cc nationals, wow, wowo, wowowowowo!! I haven't listened to these singers in ages, and it is such a welcoming way to go back to them0---last time I was listening to them it was on some cheap desktop stereos!!

 

since both these and the e88ccs from tubemonger are mullard tooling, they really sound similar, and I have to say they sound much cleaner because they are dead silent!! zero noise!! I think I don't really need to buy some mullard except for collection purposes--those shield logo give me drolls

This is encouraging, as I have ordered I can not wait to receive mine! I wonder if they will be better than the Siemens ECC85 I find already excellent.

Those are 1990 small grey shield voskhod rockets, not the best year or construction, i'd avoid those and look for better, in my experience you want 1970's grey or silver shield or early 80's silver shield.

Depends what year and construction they are, picture might just be for illustration purposes and you might get a not very good year, or even worse they might send you saratov/reflektor tubes.

Wait, how many people have I sorta caused to buying from upscale?:)))

 

are you referring to the p88cc nationals?

post #8437 of 8735

Ah no, I refer to the "Matsu****a Japan 6922 E88CC tubes. Mullard Tooling. National label and box." from tubemonger.

Thanx for answer. Um, I'll ask them what year they are and if they are really rocket.

If the picture does not match it would be unfair to them mad.gif

I like Cryoset - have bought from them for years.

 

They don't carry 6N23P Rockets - only Reflektors.

Schiit - should get a rebate on every pr of 6922 tubes sold.  They must be single-handedly responsible for selling hundreds of NOS tubes!

UPDATE:

so, I have checked again, 3 of those 5 are voshods, that is, made in that kalu something plant in russia, which means quality, and then only one out of those 3 is a listing of MATCHED pair, is SUPER CRYO SUPER AT THAT, and the best thing of it all--they only charge 5 bucks for super cryo+matching pair!! I am so biting the unnecesary shipping duplicate in a week and getting these unless someone stops me--the other 4 listings have various dates, these ones being 1977, its unmatched un super cryo single tube counterpart listing being 1980, some non voshods being 1972, some voshod at 1973 but I run cryo because I am so pleased by the outcome, so haha, 1977 is good enough.

 

 

I think he was looking to order from Cyroset.  I like Cryoset - have bought from them for years.

It looks like the tubes in the pic have a 1971 date code so certainly interesting.

Tubes-Store answer :

"Hi,


Tubes were made in 197x-198x. The rocked logo (Voskhod plant) is present!
We sent you a pair tubes with the same datacodes."

That's quite a date range and not what they're advertising

How kind!  So sketchy.  I'll sell you 2 prs of 198x Voskhod Rockets for the $16 + $8 in shipping.  Tested -USPS
