Ok tvnosaint pick me up these 45 degree'ers when you're on the Continent.  Tony is good for the money.  He still owes me for shilling his "ThurstonX's Pied Piper Pest Control" business.  I put a lot of time and effort into helping him get that little project off the ground and he stiffed me.  I will say in his defense, I understand he has greatly reduced the rat population in Belgrade...and the silverfish from his own bathroom.

Mr Crosby seems to have bumped his head with a sack of Florida oranges.

I wouldn't pay top dollar for them, the chrome finish on top is almost gone.

They probably won't last too long.

Yeah, seems ol' Bing (I assume that's what the b. stands for) is really dreaming of a White Christmas, most likely with some Miami Snow (powdery, but ya can't ski on it).  If they sell, he's all set.

I can understand the price on those Valvo tubes, probably the only "1960" 7LG tubes in existence. A steal compared to those 67 Mullard CV4108 with the GEC stickers on them. $2000 original price.

The seller of the "Telefunken" branded Heerlen 1958 'D' getter E88CCs corrected his listing and provided a new photo clearly showing the factory code (on one, at least).

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/172484011568

 

I didn't think he'd bother replying, much less fix the listing.

That`s a good seller bought from him in the past.

   Hi, do you have somebody experience with Mullard 10M E88CC? What is the sound signature of this tubes?

 

Not too much info round the net. First hand experience it is always most valuable. Thank you

If they are anything like my Mullard E88CC, Valvo and Philips Miniwatt, Mitcham plant expect rich bass and warmth in the midrange. . Signature Mullard sound. I like them better than my non PW Hollands. But at the expense of detail and Soundstage. If your looking for a warm, dynamic, detailed and punchy bass give the Brimar CV2492 a whirl. Theres an auction of 5 tubes I linked earlier. 1969 vintage.

     Just what they make that so extremely rare and expensive? Look on this add http://www.ebay.com/itm/10M-MULLARD-NOS-6922-MATCHED-PAIR-GOLD-PIN-BEST-CC-a-GREAT-BRITAIN-1960S-NEW-/401222150070?hash=item5d6ab427b6:g:W-YAAOSwcUBYIZpj

     From info what I get from this post, they has to be equivalent to Germens CCa and from my experience simple Siemens E88CC and CCa are very different.

Their paint job is what makes them rare and expensive, that and old guy radiola boosting prices like no tomorrow. It's a totally different tube from German CCa. It's a british Blackburn tube - I can't see the codes but I think I see a silver shield so that puts it in the late 60s early 70s era. From my experience good testing Siemens E88CC and CCa are exactly the same :D

But Siemens/ Philips/ Mullard Blackburn / Mitcham / Telefunken are all different.

 

So if you want tell us what kind of sound you are looking for and we can give some feedback :)

Ripoff seller imo. Overpriced with paint job.

I had the 10M Series ECC88's which were not gold pins and they were nothing special.  I've heard from others who had the 10M E88CC gold pins who really dug them.  I tend to agree with the others here though that the 10M 'thing' was all advertising.  Go with a Mullard 2492 or 2493.  If you want the best Mullard I've heard, I'd say check out Tubemonger's Mullard 4109.  I think someone here scored a used pair just a while back.

Edit:  And +1 on TK16's take on oldguyradiola being always incredibly overpriced.

I'm also really digging my Mullard Blackburn 1969 PCC88s. Seem to have slightly more detail and soundstage over my ECC88 1964 yellow print Mullard Blackburns.

Look exactly like these http://www.ebay.com/itm/222376341391 (except there are 65s). And I have some extra pairs - the price will be substantially lower than this as well :D If anyone's interested in enriching their tube palette :D
