    ZMF Pendant by Ampsandsound; impressions, tube-rolling, and general discussions

    Since my RTF ECC81 foil getter seem stuck in NY, I am now looking for RFT or Funwerk ECC83 foil getters. I found plenty of halo and a few 'solid' getters but no foil yet................ EDIT: I snagged a Funkwert ECC83 from 1958 (?) production with the 'solid' getter and hope solid is indeed...

    I use a Norne Silvergarde S3 and agree that silver hp cable is a great pairing with the susvara.

    My RFT have been sitting in NY for the past 9 days. I guess the new even lower level of USPS 'service' is for real! :confused:

    T+A Solitaire P planar magnetostatic

    I should have a shorter 1.5 meter WyWires platinum cable later this week for the P. The 3 meter T+A OEM cables are way too long for my listening location.

    The Tung Sol you bought is current production and may be fine and may just have gold pins compared to the TS you received with your BB. The TS I have is a smoked glass version from the 1943. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123793807709?hash=item1cd2af995d:g:TcQAAOSwyJVc-IU...

    I got a TON of help and valuable guidance from @me2621a when I bought my BB and all the suggestions he made were very good and accurate. One of the best decisions I made, with @me2621a's help, was buying the GEC A-2900 input tube. Much better all around and with nice extension in the detail and...

    Trying various input tubes, in place of the stock 6SLN, should make the single biggest difference for the BB. Most folks feel power tubes next and then the rectifier. There are some nice vintage or perhaps real NOS Tung Sol 6SU7 or Mullard ECC35 both drop in replacements w/o the need for an...
