Soon, very soon!!!!!!

What EF80 tubes are supposed to be "best"? I have some telefunken but was planing on getting some Philips, Miniwatt and Mullard. At 4€ a piece NOS, they're so cheap (+ matching of course)

 

I use them as a substitute for 6SJ7 with an adapter in my LaFigaro OTL 339.

Ever think of getting a adapter to use some C3g tubes in place of the 6SJ7?

I know you have some of these around the house. Not sure how they will sound in that circuit

but they sound great in the circuit I use.

Would that be an adapter that I can get on ebay? (link) or would that be adapters you would have to make Glenn? I'm willing to try that

I probably would have to make it not many company's use this tube except a few extreme high end company's.

And me.

And I don't know why they are not expensive.

Really the C3 tubes are Jules that haven't been discovered yet.

Could you maybe make me two 6SJ7 (original tube is 6J4P) to C3G adapters and send them to Clayton? he's coming to me in a week or 2/3. It would save a lot on shipping. If yes I'll send you a pm!

 

(I've used 6J4P, 5693, 6SJ7 and EF80 with the adapter. the amp uses 2 of these and 2 6AS7G tubes)

The 6J4P is pin for pin the same as a 6SJ7?  I will look and see if I have the parts Let you know tomorrow or after I get off work

But that is pretty late there.

 

I am thinking about making a OTL using a C3g as a driver for 6AS7s but it may have to much gain for a OTL.

After I make the next couple of amps People are waiting for I will try this.

The 6SJ7 and 5693 are direct replacements, no adapter. The 6J4P to EF80 adapter looks like this:

 

 

 

 

That's about all I can tell you I'm afraid...

Oh and in case you don't read the Woo thread:

 

I just found and bought a new batch of NOS 2399/5998 for a new group buy (10 to 20 tubes)! I'll post more info once available!

Hey Ultra-, do you think I'd like the 2399/5998 in my WA22?

I've got something up my sleeve but I'm not telling.

We all know he's a bit naughty ;-)

Well that's hard to tell if you would like them. How is the WA22s soundsig? + Do you like the 5998 sound?

Actually I am a bit naughty and nice. Go ask Santa. That's why I only get half of what I ask for at Christmas. And I don't ask for much. There has to be a good balance. ;)

 

I like the RCA 5AS7 very much. I've never heard the 5998. Maybe I'll just skip the 5998. No use buying something I haven't heard. What I haven't heard I haven't missed.
