I went on a little tube buying spree earlier: got 2 pairs of NOS 1952 cbs/hytron 6SN7's -- one pair for use in my coming EC Electra and another for my ECBA, which only needs one, but I figured a spare would be nice. Those 2 aforementioned pairs also tested better than any of the single tubes I could find on ebay.
I also got a matched quad of those fancy Psvane EL34PH's for the Electra as well. I was originally going to wait until I had gotten a feel for the stock tubes, but... idk, I figured I'd buy better tubes anyways before formulating a final opinion on the amp, so I may as well order them sooner than later. I still plan on using the stock ones for a bit, though.
My urge to buy tubes may have been inspired by my dream last night wherein I found a really large 6SN7 in my grandmother's backyard. It had a stack of Sennheiser HD6x0 driver magnets inside which gave off super saiyan 2 electric sparks.
A head-fi member I won't name (no one in this thread) said he'd rape me if I didn't let him borrow this tube, but I told him he couldn't rape what he couldn't see and woke up.
Nothing about any of that fazed me in the moment.
