    Nice. Now you can get TS RPBG for half the price that of the 6SN7. See if you can find some fivre 12sn7, and let us know if you like it.

    You know that was the first 12SN7 I got... a Tung Sol Rectangle Plate Black Glass, it was like $18ish dollars. 12sn7's are soooo cheap! It's wonderful! I also couldn't resist buying a 12sn7 Jan-Chs vt289... neither or the 12SN7s are matched as closely as my preferred 6sn7, but they aren't TOO drastically off, 750/725 and 1000/1100 respectively... so we will see!

    Thanks for the info.

    Another crazy guy from Italy. These tubes are good, but not that good. :)

    What 12SN7s do you have? I use 12SN7 in my Liquid Glass and theyre terrific!

    Why do you think they are not good? Because of the price Im assuming?

    the TS BGRP 12SN7 are my favourite tubes of all time no comparison. I've been trying to find some decent fivres but no luck.

    ECC33 and Fivres are my favorite 6SN7 tubes.

    The fivre 6sn7 seem to be too expensive. Have never tried the ECC33, but I liked my TS BGRP better than the Mullard ECC32

    Is this considered pornography in this thread?


    Eddie Current Super 7 (7x 6SN7s in one amp)

    Apologies for the temporary use of new production tubes. Please don't ban me.

    What 6SN7 are considered to be the most transparent? (with least coloration)
  12. Mshenay Contributor
    You know good and darn well it is!!!!!

    That's a loaded question, but I prefer the 1944 JAN-CHS VT231 White Label Bottom Getter Sylvania 6sn7 Tall Bottle, though what I consider a lack of coloration other's consider as color,

    They say these tubes are REALLY BRIGHT and bass lite... I've found them to be... very resolving and having a preserve a lot of energy up top while still adding a little of that tubey sweetness, to put it this way I prefer... almost everything I own with my Ember II and one of those bad bois over my balanced solid State NFB10ES2, the only thing I use with my NFB10ES2 any more these days is my AKG K240 Sextett, and that's only because it needs gobs of power to have some solidity in the low end... other wise it's my Hybrid Tube of choice and a 1944 White Label Sylvania!

    I havent tried them so might give them a shot if I can find a cheap pair. Thanks for the recommendation!

    For the very reasons you mentioned I have just ordered a VT-231 Syl to use in my DV, looking forward to giving it a try, also managed to get it for a decent price too, £19 with postage. Not so easy to get hold of here in the UK.

    Here's some fun, I'm going to try a Psvane CV181-T Mark II if I can get it. Offered the guy $98+shipping so it'll be the second costliest 6sn7 I have. Sadly, I have the Green Label 1950's version of my precious white label Sylvania that did cost me around $100+shipping and it sounds... more different than anything... only keeping it because it took me 2 months to find a single one that wasn't priced crazily
