Someone traded me the Sel pcc88 for some Voskhods. I also tried a Seimens PCC88 gray shield...looks identical to a CCa. Sounded god aweful! Took 6 weeks to sell for $50 on ebay! Almost went for an Amperex pinched waist pcc88 for like $80. But after the last two pcc88s I gave up.

P.S. Tubeworld is a business...
Well yeah they are a business! It called Tubeworld for a reason. I have dealt with Brenden for over 10yrs, he's a good guy and knows his tubes. Do you think he would rate as #1 a tube he can't get to sell - as a business promotion? You can vote on his website for your favorite 6922 tube. I think he has about 1,100 voters.

You can buy tons on ebay for like $40 pr. Might work ok for some folks on a budget.

Yes, I was curious at that time, NOW I don't...I would rather listen to my Voskhod 76/gray.  Still searching 75/gray.  :wink_face:

That's a different boom. ;)

 

The SELs aren't Stuttgarts. Eis (Yugo) are common.

Of course, Sel aren't Stuttgarts.  People went crazy over because their curiosity and cheapness.  :biggrin:

Just a pinch of salt, no need to get upset.

I had six or eight sets of those back when TubeMonger was selling them at $100 per matched pair for the 2-mica and $140 for a matched set of the 3-mica...all Stuttgart tubes. The truth is you would probably have difficulty naming a brand or 6922/7308/E88CC/ECC88/PCC88/E188CC family type that I didn't try at least once... wink.gif

Sorry! Didn't mean to get snappy. But some dealers are full of baloney sometimes! Like the one who told me the Amperex Pinch Waists weren't to good. That no tube is best, because it's amps dependent. Then procceds to tell me which one is best! Ugg!!! Brenden is a good guy - just very premium prices. Besides his site has tons of pictures of tubes and descriptions - a very good learning resource. Maybe the Lorentz CCa are #1? I sure wish I had a pr!! Lucky guy!

I came while that was going strong here. I see that a pr of the Sel Lorenz pcc88 West Germany sold for $48 on ebay recently. But like you said a SEL is not a Stuttgart. But are they close? I didn't have a Stuttgart to compare. Again for some folks on a budget the SEL might work

Well that totals $2660. Maybe some Mullards if you like that sound. $3000. With a thousand to spare!

 

Had most all those plus the Lorenz Stuttgart PCC88 2 & 3 micas and the Mullard CV4109s. Right now my favorite tubes are the Philips Miniwatt E188SQ, Amperex 6922 PQ, and USN-CEP 7308s...all with at least one backup set.

SEL Lorenz was still a German company but the tubes were made in Nish, Yugoslavia IIRC...
