That getter is a telltale sign.

 

I think the tube might be a 5Ц4С (basically a 5Z4G). See http://trexgroup.ru/upload/gallery/4900b1155277857090e3ccb5392971f7.jpg.

So does that make it a GZ30 and not a GZ33? And if so, can it be used in your amp, Glenn?

The Russian 5Ц4С (5Z4G) actually came with my Woo 22. Jack Wu shipped it as the stock rectifier. Glenn has told me that any 5-volt octal rectifier will work in his mono blocks so I assume the same will apply to your new amp from Glenn. Am I correct, Glenn?

Ok great, but will it be as good as a GZ33? smile.gif

I listened to the Russian 5Ц4С this morning in Glenn's amps. The sound is very clear and somewhat analytical. Mind you, the tubes I used are NOS and were never broken in. By comparison GZ33 has a warmer and more natural soundstage than the 5Ц4С.

 

I own two CV1863 (5Z4G) from the Rochester plant. It is also a very nice tube. One of my favorite rectifiers to use in the WA6 and WA22 and now also in Glenn's MBs.

Indeed.

post #2527 of 10646

Must get a new GZ33 then. Especially as Glenn said these will go well with his amp

If you have a GZ37 that will be OK

A few days ago I received three beautiful rectifiers (and some nice sweets) from Glenn.

 

I'll take a photo and then I'll evaluate them.

 

Glenn is helping me shape up with some nice sweets....................that's exactly what I needed after a weekend fighting with a very nasty ebay seller who knowingly sold me a dead tube.

 

Meantime back to "My Army of Lovers"............

Make sure you let us know who that cat is. wink_face.gif

It's getting worst SO.

 

Within 4 weeks or so I had to deal with two bad eBay sellers.

The second seller was nasty and abusive and that upset me more than the dead tube.

 

I did get my money back but it was a terrible transaction.

 

Any way, an average (not strong) testing B65 without a proper label/etching sold over $330 yesterday!

I still can't believe it.

I would report the seller's abusive behavior to eBay immediately. And then get a good night's sleep.

Clayton just as well Glenn sent me some nice sweets with the rectifiers.

 

Need a nice photo of your amps to cheer me up!

post #2534 of 10646

^ Sure. Okay.

Here's a panorama of my San Francisco living room with Glenn's living amps!

Detail--that right speakers looks warped. That's because of my shaky hand:
