Most people say its the other way around. I have the straight based ones. Bought them for 17€.
yeah impossible to find at those prices now, all 300-400+ $
also the GEC U52 is pretty expensive and in the same price range.
The Mullard CV378. I don't think I have paid as much as $200 each ever. Maybe $150, and that was relatively recent.
Yes, just as I thought. Glenn's OTL definitely improves with a better ac cable. Just used the Pangea AC-9 from my other amp and the vocals I was referring back as a bit harsh and unrefined has improved. The hum is also less pronounced. Cant wait for my AC-9SE cable to arrive. With close to 20 hours of break-in time it seems things are starting to marinate quite good.
