Yes...damn ur right..had to check myself on the tubes itself just now..never knew that to be honest!..lolz
.u have good eyes..lolz...but they are all made by tung sol..(as u probably know) i actually bought these as tung sol (in states) but i got these..and never looked back..check urself..they are exactly same as the tung sol branded ones..

Even the box in which they came says tung sol 5998.. As u can see on my pics i provided of the boxes

Did i answer ur question now? Ur in ireland..so this is a superdeal for u..i paid more then 200 euro in total (price with importduties and postage from states) for these tubes back in january..and only used them for max 100 hours as i got myself some very special bendix shortly after..and used them instead and had my 5998 as backup. wink.gif

A certain girl here who is into tubes would say (she has 5pairs of GEC's, OMG): get them while u can..especially if u can get them cheap..i think u know who i mean..she actually bought my bendix by the way of which she is now talking about on a certain thread..lolz

Totally silent..i asked the seller to sent me his quietest ones he had (he had received 10 pairs)..and this pair has not one noise in it...complete silence! And on top of that..the original 6sj7gt TS mesh plates i have as driver tubes are dead silent also...and that is super rare! Its almost impossible i understand to get a completely noiseless mesh plates! And i have a pair! And i sell them cheap also.

And no microphic i know off ... But that can also be because my amp is 16kg heavy! So its weight could ofcourse help in killing any microphobics!
To be honest..only some the original supplied tubes with the 337 are noisy and microphobic... 5998 arent..and if urs are then u have a inferior set. Imho they shiuldnt be microphobic as far i know..

I know how u feel my friend..i was almost acting like sherlock holmes when i was looking for a pair of NOS bendix 6080WB graphite plates..but got them from same seller who sold me the 5998's.. Was his only pair he got in two years! They are NOS and MATCHED..DBS is lucky she got them For a good price from me... Am a Nice guy wink.gif

Just checked postage to Ireland..its cheap...20 euro with track and trace..(12 euro is without track and track..sorry)

As i said..i also have a pair of extremely rare (completely silent!!) NOS and matched pair of TS 6sj7GT mesh plates..the best driver tubes money can buy! I ask a very fair price for them..50usd..so for an european its almost for nothing! And if u buy them both u only have to pay for postage once..lolz
The other tubes that i have i will sell with my amp..a nos pair of also rare vintage 70ties svetlana 6as7g tubes... They are very detaily and fast and almost sound SS!!
And a nos pair of RCA 5693 red hots!

And take ur time about the 5998's am not in a hurry...see ya on monday then tongue.gif

And if u pay by paypal i will take care of the paypal fees (3,5%+ 0,35 euro).
