post #4201 of 5552

Thanks for the guide Coil ,I think I might need it ...

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

received this tube today but I'm little preoccupied trying to finish my new rig (bending some acrylic tubing ),I've listen to this tube for about 30min and it sounds pretty balanced/3D  ,will spend more time with my DT880's to get a better feel for it 

 

here are some of my new favorite tunes

Stopped by the local tube store today and picked up a few other tubes I did not have. One is an RCA black plate USA made 6aq8.


*EDIT*

The RCA Blackplate 6AQ8 is a damn fine sounding tube.

Decide to make my own list of tubes that work. Tubes with * next to them means I have personally verified them in my Aune T1.

 

 

Tubes that are 100% compatible.

7308*

6AQ8*

6BK7*

6FQ7*

6FW8*

6GC7*

6GM8*

Tubes that work, but have a very high heater current draw. I am confidant the Aune can handle the current, but I am not responsible if yours does break.

I have been using the 6H30Pi for a few days, and no problems noted. No excessive heat. 

 

 

6H6N*
6H30P*

6H30Pi*
6N30P-DR*

Great list! Joeq70 should link this to the thread starter.
post #4207 of 5552

Please add socket adapter guide/mod also to each corresponding tube section. And If you experience some distortion/problems within some tube type, then don`t forget to mention it. For example some PCC85 work great, some don`t.

How vulnerable is it?

There is always some element of risk when buying "used" but if you buy through EBAY or PAYPAL you can be protected. Is the price significantly lower then the $159 on Amazon where you can feel "safe" ?

I have seen some vintage rectifier tubes costing $750 or more, but $1768.99 is a mind boggling sum for any tube,, especially an ECC81. I can't imagine that there will be any bids, or that the seller expects any.

I'm pretty amazed how good MULLARD ECC85/6AQ8 is (pictured above- thanks lwrs10 )..I was going to jump on 880's but I got stuck listening to this tube on he400's and I got to say this is the best balanced tube I've listen to ,the instrument separation is quite amazing

@ lwrs10 ..did listen to some acoustic guitar (Stillborn/Skullage (Acoustic) [feat. Zakk Wylde] ) and have to admit ..yes it is that good  :D

 

I won't go into details about it since lwrs10's review pretty much have all you need .

P.S. the one I have is also GRAY PLATE ROUND GETTER ,copper rods but it's not pinched ,as for steel pins ..this tube prove me wrong

I like buying secndhand. In case I dont like easy to resell.

Most gear are quite ok or if you have receipt can easily send it for repairs.

 

no buyer protection.

Glad you like it! Now find an RCA blackplate 6AQ8 and step up one more notch.
