My TS 6F8Gs have a very loud noise floor compared to my Sylvania 6SN7GTs.  Maybe I haven't given them sufficient time to burn in, but they seem to introduce a very loud hum that is not present with the 6SN7s.  I'm using them in my WA22, so you may get different (better?) results with your Glennamp.  I do like the sound of the tubes, though.  They seem to give very clear mids without giving up anything in the lower end compared to the 6SN7s.  Just something to consider.

Now you need a quad of GEC KT88

and pair of Tung-Sol 6SN7s or Tung-sol or National Union 6F8G round plate

 

TS 6SN7GTB NOS for $50 a piece, how's that price?

Are they round plate ?

One glorious piece....:D

TS 6SN7GTB's can't be round plates.

They usually have a strong low end, a lot would depend on the synergy with the other tubes.

 

Eric I suggest a pair of humble Hytron 6SN7's or TS 6SN7 Mouse Ears, or Sylvania or RCA nothing more than $50 for a pair.

Thanks Stavros...Amazing variety of choices in this tube catagory!

SO I'm thinking of getting new feet for the Glenn Amp, something spikey and cheap. Any suggestions?

I'll probably get an Ikea cutting board, euh I mean a wooden surface plate to minimize contact to go along with it, too.

 

(for those who didn't get it, the SO is a reference to Silent One who has gorgeous feet on his Glenn OTL. But they're a bit expensive if I remember well) :rolleyes:

Those are Dayton Speaker spikes underneath the OTL - inexpensive. It's the 2.7gram Brass footers I have that are costly. :normal_smile :

If I could haul Glenn's amps to this event and place them on display I would.

 

So, how did it go? (previously asked in the wrong thread...:rolleyes:)

SO, Glenn,

 

for new feet, would I need M6 threaded ones? Or a different size?

 

thanks!

I'll learn this myself when Glenn answers, because I super-glued my spikes. :normal_smile :

Hmm, that can't be ideal for securing the spikes.  Unless you have some aerospace grade adhesive for a nice bond :P
