I will have to see what the next crazy tube to try is tried the 6E6 that didn't work out but maybe the 6N7 similar but more gain.

Besides enjoying the music, I have found learning about this stuff to be fun as well. Looking back, when I purchased my very first vacuum tube amp in summer 2010, I had no idea rolleyes.gif what I got myself into (Silent One shakes his fist in the general direction of member rosgr63).

It looks clean, simple and very business like. I really want to use lovely, but I'd best wait until I get my grubby little hands on the glass. biggrin.gif

 

Will put it through a few paces for seven days, thereabouts, and see what I have. If not my tea, I'll keep the 12SN7 adapter instead. And then buy a TS-BGRP for it, sending the Brimar and adapter back.

 

Wait...I just remembered there's more than just the Brimar available for the adpater. So, never mind, I'll keep it.

If the 1633 tubes are the staggered plate type then the adapter is worth its weight in gold just to get cheap Ken Rads.  If they are parallel plate tubes then I believe that would make them GE made, not quite so great but we'll just have to wait and see which one it turns out to be.

 

Is there a 13D1 variant with black glass Glenn?  Though I must say that tube in the picture is quite desirable looking too, there is something about original boxes that makes it so much more fun.

 

l purposely arrange my tubes so the original boxed ones are visible from the front of the drawer.

Xcalibur255, perhaps when Glenn logs back on in the morning, we can find out which plates inside his KR's have crossed his bench. I am curious. At this writing, I might be able to guess which one is which by sight. Then again, maybe not...

 

After dinner, will go '1633' hunting to see if I can make that determination from a web shot.

Howdy!

 

I've taken some of my free-time (rigghhhtttt...) and sifted through some of the tube hoard. I've found  a handful of the 12SN7s and a ton of the 6CG7s - these are nine-pin miniature? Found a handful of 45s too.

 

I've a few more boxes to dig through, I can't wait to find out what else I have.

I've seen your vast array of boxes filled with tubes. To see you go through a few in real-time via webcam, would be worthy of my super premium ice-cream or gelato!

From what I know only Brimar makes the 13D1. It does sound that the 1633 currently can be found in dark glass may work with the adapter.

It wouldn't be that much fun: me talking to myself and an ecletic array of music in the background.

 

Also, it wouldn't be starting until now. I just got in from watching for Persied meteors. If it is still dark by you, go outside!!! I saw 17 in the last 45 min.

Nice, very nice Wotts.

 

I hope you had your portable gear with you.

post #689 of 10778

I will send you a Ken-Rad 1633 with staggered plates with the 13D1 and adapter.
