No. Out of budget range. I'd rather spend that kind of money on another Glenn Amp. ;)

It is a cult, the only tube that was designed/made to operate from 5.7V to 7.7V.

Unfortunately I am a victim to this cult.

One of the very few tubes for which a data sheet does not exist.

Only a Japanese site has published some data but I don't  read Japanese to search for it.

Have you tried any 2A3 monoplates or 6A3 box plates or flat plates?

Very nice Clayton.

Your driver is a 6SN7GTA side getter tube, not an exiting tube.

Try a NOS Sylvania 6SN7 if you can.

Is there a Mullard 6AS7G?

I'd love to see a picture!

Is that tube's sound too tight? I've haven't been able to compare it with your Sylvania recommendation.

 

I've got some Sylvania 7N7 tubes with Glenn's adapters. I should try that combo--never have.

Or a TS 6SN7GT mouse ears or similar construction without the ears.

They are cheap and sound better IMHO.

Don't take my word for it, please try it.

Better yet. I'll come over next year and listen with you and Glenn :D

post #6473 of 10672

That would be fantastic!

There'll be no time for auditioning we'll have so much to do and food to try instead!

I don't want to start any tube wars...........

 

 

Take a deep breath and save your money.

 

Mullard as far as I know never made any 6AS7G.

There are 6080 types labelled as Marconi, Mullard,GEC, Brimar which sell for about $10-$20.

Probably made in the US.

 

EDIT Mullard also

Listening now to my Glenn OTL with Denon D7000. Fantastic! Just like the doctor ordered. Listen to it every hour on the hour and you won't have to call your doctor in the morning! :)

 

Glenn, I'm cured. For the time being, at least until I order my next Glenn Amp prescription.


Clayton

 

What do you want in your next amp??

I will start gathering parts.

post #6475 of 10672

here on vacuumtubes.net .... 3rd from the bottom - 35 dollars each which i don't think is too bad unless its a typo. I have never heard them myself¬

other than the tung sol 5998 and ts/sylv 7236 and gec 6a7sg what other types of power tubes do you guys like in the Glenn OTL. I wanna buy a few different varieties for the amp. Ill be using hd800/t1. Maybe RCA,Chatam and Bendix?

Wouldn't surprise me if those were relabeled Svetlanas or Mullard 6080s.

That's my understanding as well.

Mullard-made 6080s can still be bought quite reasonably. GECs (MOV-made) tend to cost a bit more.

post #6479 of 10672

Thanks for he confirmation Oskari.

 

As far as I know MOV made 6AS7G and 6SN7's amongst others but Mullard didn't make either.

I am talking about Mullard not Philips, Miniwatt, etc.

post #6480 of 10672

Are the Mullard branded 6080 actually Mullard UK made? I had a pair once that I thought looked an awful lot like US GE...
