Does anybody here have any experience with the Mullard GZ-37 "Fat Glass" rectifier tube? i was thinking about bying this tube for my WA6-SE.
But is it worth the 300$ or would a good GZ34 (not metalbase) be something similar for 1/3 or half the Price!.
If i remember correct a member here compared the gz37 "fat glass" type rectifier with some other good rectifier tubes, but i cannot find the thread now.
It is realy nice to hear about other member's views and experiences around the many different tubes out there, it realy makes the choice easier
Don't shoot me for this, ok... I bought an used Mullard GZ37/CV378 (brown base). In my opinion, it sounds not as good as the Sophia and 596 on the WA6SE. The bass extension is lacking. The mids and highs sound a little weak compared to the Sophia/596. Overall, it sounds a little shallow. It may be that my particular tube is a lemon (I've had different experiences between same brand tubes before).
Wish I can try a GZ34 one day. I personally like the Sophia a lot (I currently used it over the 596)
