Yes, I got it from Ebay. I will do an A/B tomorrow with the SP & let you know exactly , don't want to do a comparison from memory. It been a few days since I heard the Sophia's.

Thanks for reminding me about these tubes.

I contacted the seller and bought (1) from him for $45.00 shipped.

Please let us know your impressions between the S/P-274B and Mullard 5V4G when you get the chance. Thanks again.

I also want to burn them in for about 30-40 hours before doing any comparison, will keep you updated.

Someone's selling a pair of USAF 596 in the F/S T forum, but I need only one. Will someone be willing to buy the pair jointly with me (I take one & U take one) ?

guitarplayer.com has an informative article entitled "All About Rectifiers" by Dave Hunter which gave me more insight as to their function.  I learned that the transformer feeds AC voltage into the rectifier which turns that voltage into the pure DC voltage needed by the output tubes to function.  Depending on the rectifier, the voltage leaving the rectifier is increased to different degrees.  The article speaks of SS rectification and tube rectification and the effect of each on the sound produced.  A good read.

Are any of you aware of information provided by rectifier manufacturers that details how much gain in voltage a specific rectifier will produce?

The seller is a good guy, you have no worries

Do you know there is a 596 on ebay as well?

post #220 of 359

Yes but I am not in the US & it has only US shipping.

That is my listing, the reason I'm not selling single is I will keep the match pair for my future amp if needed a pair.
