I don't have the time to go through this thread and the old one , so is there anyone who can do a quick sum up of 
the top tubes for this combo ? regular_smile%20.gif
Budget : 100$-200$ (max)
thank you

Go for Amperex 1958-59 Bugle Boy's ECC88 or PCC88 with D-getters. I prefer these over Orange Globes with the HE-500. These tubes go for around $150 in NOS condition when you can find them.

How would you compare Telefunken ECC88 to the Bugle Boys ?

I've never heard the Telefunkens.

To my ears, the Telefunken Ecc88 is a more mid-centric tube then the Bugle Boy, the bugle Boy has a less blended sound with more separation between the highs and lows. They are both good tubes it comes down to a matter of the sound signature one seeks.

 

That being said, I would choose both over Orange Globes if I had to choose.

So basically for vocal music (rock, pop etc. where good mids are essential) go with Telefunken Ecc88  & for EDM (where you need a good bass punch) go with Orange Globes / Bugle boys ?.

 

Thanks

I have a few pairs of both Orange Globes and Bugle Boys. I've always found the Orange Globes better, it's easier to find the Bugle Boys though.

I prefer Orange Globes with the Sennheiser HD 600, not the HE-500 though. The 58-59 D getter Bugle Boys are not too easy to find. It's generally accepted that these are the best of the Bugle Boys. You can't make general statements about Bugle Boys and OGs because different years used different constructions and they don't all sound the same.

Is someone able to identify these? 

 

Why do they look like they have blackened soot inside the tubes?

The GE smokies are some of the better tubes for the price. They are coated that way and helps to reduce some forms of interference. Smoked glass are not a rare option in tubes.

GE "Smokies".  Google away ;)

You guys sure they are not burnt out or something? 

 

I dare not try because these came to me free of charge from the seller who sent me some bad Orange Globes.

At first I thought they looked similar to the stock GE tubes from Schiit, but not.
