I got the T-shirt here-- (Ultra-, don't look): http://www.tubedepot.com/sw-ts-003.html

 

I also got him two RCA T-shirts, one in red and one in blue, here: http://shirtboss.com/37-rca-lightning-shirt-1.html

Nice. Thanks!

I think you should tell Eric the truth.

You actually mean a car battery...............

Are you ready for the challenge Eric?very_evil_smiley.gifevil_smiley.gifvery_evil_smiley.gif

It was more than okay. I ate foods that I didn't even know existed, like Smurfentaart, Filet Americain, and cold pasta salad with tuna and pears (it was pears, wasn't it).

We also listened to a little bit of music.

No wonder I am perpetually hungry!!!!!!!

 

Eric, I like your way of positive thinking

post #4734 of 10868

Hay Ultra do you have enough food for all of us.

I am always up for some new food that I haven't tried before.

Still have to have two output transformers I do have some small good sounding transformers for this tube.

Yes and no these battery tubes are quite micro phonic with there thin filament.

Supposedly micro phonic tubes sound the best. Not for me though if I know a tube is micro phonic

it will drive me crazy knowing it is in my amp. It took me months to find a pair of quiet #26 tubes

for my preamp.

post #4738 of 10868

For me the microphonics are part of a tube's character.

 

If I can hear in only when I tap the tube but it's quiet otherwise I don't mind at all.
