Project Ember Tube Rolling - Page 15

post #211 of 213
Posted this in another thread for the PS and PS2 tube rolling but have the Ember. I'd like to pop into this thread and give you my top 2 tubes for the Project Ember. The Telefunkun 1962 12AT7 and the Amperex Feb 1958 D or Square Getter (don't know the difference between the 2). 2nd place goes to the TFK 1968 E88CC from Upscale and a 1965 Amperex BB small O getter. However, The Siemens and Halske E88CC Grey Shield has the best midrange though. Headphones I use the most are Senns HD600 and HIFIMan He-500s. IMHO only.

The trend in this thread seems to be that NOS Amperex and Telefunken ar ethe way to go if you can afford them. Most other tubes seem to be situational.

I will agree with that. Telefunken and Amperex are by far the best sounding tubes I've tied. I own a nice handful of different brand tubes. all of them but two are vintage.
