The best sounding tube compliment is

Sylvania 5AW4   Ken-Rad 1633     GEC 6AS7



Thanks Punnit for lending me the GEC 6AS7s

You are most welcome :beerchug:. Time to take a break from making amps for a few days & just sit back & enjoy the music.


Edit - Quite fitting that this should be my 1000'th post.

Do the CBS 5AW4 & Sylvania 5AW4 sound different ? I have the CBS, should I also get the Syl ?

The Sylvania looks Identical to the CBS I think they were both made by the same company.

I will give you another one for a spare not sure of the label but it will be the same tube.

There not that tuff, that is if you manage to insert them without cracking them this happened to a few guys on the LittleDot thread including myself bad production who knows never had that happen to me before. Thanks

C3g tubes can be run in any position.

Only direct heated tubes have to be run upright due to filament sag and causing a short.

tubes like 5U4 and 300B 2A3 have to be run upright.
