Hi Gibosi,

 

I am under the impression that Telefunken also made C3g tubes. Don't know if the C3g tubes marked Valvo were made by Valvo.

Hi Mikelap,

 

Congrats on your new amp! Looks like it could use 6080 tubes as well. If you want to try Sylvania 6080 tubes from the 60s, let us know your impressions - these are my favorite power tubes in the modded LD MKIII.

Since the Telefunkens and Valvos I am seeing have the same smooth shiny black cans as the Siemens, I have much less confidence that these are anything but Siemens. That said, if I find a pair of either of these for a cheap, will definitely give them a try.

so far, while maybe not blown, but the brain is very happy, and the ears are still intact ,

This is a nice combination, but d4rkch1ld is right - putting in 6AS7/6080 power tubes brings it up to a different level. The ultimate mod of the LD MKIII adds C3g tubes as driver tubes.

 

I have been running this combination (6080/C3gS) for several months now, and it only gets better. End game?

 

I think so, at least for the LD MKIII. The next step up would be a different, much more expensive amp......However, I am perfectly happy with this combination, at least for now....

oh i'm loving the 6sn7's i just meant nothing blew up ! lol

which for some reason, i was a little nervous before i hit the power switch, 

i'm hearing more depth and weight , the bass goes lower and is tight, well controlled , instruments have better separation , i'm a very happy camper !

You use the same adapter for 6AS7/6080 as you do for 6SN7 but you need an external psu for the heaters.
