I told you about the Lorenz C3g

Not many options with the C3g but they all sound good

There are many PY500s all a little different most from Europe but there are some USA made and some Panasonic made in Japan.

I will send you a pair of US made PY500s they sound different but that will be up to you what one sounds best to you.

 

Thanks Glenn. I have the following on hand:

C3G: Lorenz / Seimens / Telefunken

PY500: Telefunken / Mullard / RCA ... have some more euro tubes but recall exaactly which.

I have to finish whirlwinds OTL that will be the same as gibosis except it will have a Lundahl transformer and PY500 rectifiers then I will build your 300B amp.

Love crazy tubes that cost $2.00 and are better then the best 5 volt rectifiers.

Currently, I'm pushing the envelope a bit and listening to a Mullard ECC31. Apparently it is identical to an ECC32, except for a common cathode and thus a simple pin adapter is required. To my ears, sounds great.

 

(I wish I could take a picture as nice as SO's, but my cell-phone camera just isn't all that good)

I have my doubts that Telefunken manufactured this tube and believe it just a rebranded Siemens. And for that reason I have not purchased a pair. If you do notice sonic differences please let us know. :)

Will do. Tube rebranding is a nightmare. 6F8Gs in particular.

I'll be posting amp-porn all over the shop once I get my grubby hands on the 300B Glenn amp.

My HD800, HD650, and myself are getting pretty dang excited....to say the least.

Still at the whole punching stage squeezing in 2 rectifier tubes instead of one dual rectifier.  Had to finish Georg's 300B amp with the silver transformers and silver wire

Plan on having it done in 2 weeks.

I can almost picture it.   Postal guy delivering a huge heavy box while I'm there jumping in excitement.   Can't wait to see what Glenn have to say about them opt.
