You should check out the Voskhod Rockets 6n23p, like myself, many here have had a good experience with these. They seem to be quite durable, have excellent bass, clarity, presence and sound staging. A decent pair can be had for under $30.

For the review I did on the different years, you can read post #8596 on the old thread.

Have fun!

Post a few pics of the tubes showing the markings and the plate construction and we should be able to help you. Without that info all we can do is guess...

Thanks for everyone's patience with me, it seemed a simple question, but I now realize it is a more involved assessment. Here is the link to Ebay which has numerous photos.

I think the answer to your question is, No, they are not rebranded OGs (i.e., Orangle Globes).  mercedesman calls them Red Globes.  My guess is that the construction is different than OGs.

 

from: http://www.ebay.com/gds/Amperex-6DJ8-ECC88-Tubes-Types-and-Production-Years-/10000000003350322/g.html

11. Amperex Orange Globe with A-Frame Getter 1969-1976

 

These are not 'A-Frame'

 

But I'm no expert.  Unless someone else who's heard these or similar tubes chimes in, you'll have to take the chance and hear them for yourself.  At least you can be sure that mercedesman is reputable and is not trying to pull a fast one.

 

These:

are listed as rebranded OGs.  You can see the difference in construction.  No longer available, so this is for illustration only.

Curious if they saw the photos on the eBay listing.  It's clearly labeled "Holland".  That would be odd, to say the least, if it's from Japan.

TubeMonger replied: Labels such as Made in Holland, Britain, Germany etc do not mean much for tubes. Date codes, glass and construction is better indicator. On relabeled tube, Made in xxx was often done for various reasons (marketing, import tax etc.). Hope this helps...

PS - I've seen examples of ITT Lorenz tubes with Germany labels when they were actually made in Nish, Yugoslavia...

Well a Holy Grail collection could be: 1 pr Amperex Pinch Waists $600 on Audiogon now, 1pr Siemens early '60s CCa Gray Shields $550 ebay, 1 pair of Telefunken CCas $550 ebay, 1 pair of Amperex or Philips Miniwatts SQ '60s $300, a pair Amperex CEP USN 7308s $200, a pair of Valvo Hamburg (Tube mongers favs) $300, and a pair '75 Voskhods $160. Well that totals $2660. Maybe some Mullards if you like that sound. $3000. With a thousand to spare!
