Separate names with a comma.
My favourite driver at the moment.
A great tube indeed.
I remember carrying one of these around when doing service calls for my father in the mid to late 70's and the 80's.
The caddy could get pretty heavy with all of the tubes and the tools in it....soldering irons, volt meters,ect.
This picture brings back some great memories.
Like many here I store my tubes in tube boxes then store those in mid to large size rubber tubs made by rubbermaid. These are nice as they are stackable and I keep them in the basement.
I keep a few smaller tubes in my closet in my listening room for quick access so I can roll tubes in my amps.
Something like these little tubes...these are cheap, only a couple of dollars each. It works out well and keeps the tubes some what organized.
A tub this size will hold 24 power tubes and many more driver tubes, so no need to run to the basement all the time. Getting to old to run the basements steps very often
Very nice Joe, I have small container for some of my tubes the others are in boxes.
Come on, what can I say for myself......I don't dare!
I remember someone on here saying that they thought the 1578 is great at the frequency extremes but lacks in the midrange. I certainly don't find that to be the case as I find the mid presence to be quite magical.
You probably need another house to store all of your tubes! Glenn told me you have tubes that he has never seen before.
I don't want to call you old also.......but
My wife tells me that 60 years old is the new 40.
Then I proceed to tell her that , yes, and 9:00 pm is the new midnight!
Oh your Lady is my friend, my respect.
I like it: *60 years old is the new 40".
The crazy thing is I have amps that can use all these tubes.
I'd much rather talk about audio gear I can't afford--or maybe a list of past root canals--than getting old.
And I would be thrilled if a woman, younger than I am, were to tell me that 70 is the new 50. lol
Me too Ken
The only consolation is that some tubes I use are older than me............
Yes, thank goodness for my No 27's, which are about 90 years old. ahaha
Does anyone know anything about this tube? I took a chance while looking at what a local organ repair shop had.
I don't own any Westinghouse 6SN7GTB and I am not sure that Westinghouse even manufactured this tube. Most of what I see on eBay look a lot like rebranded RCA production. Unfortunately the picture you posted doesn't provide much detail, but I would suggest that you compare what you have to pictures of RCA 6SN7GTB. And if you have an RCA of similar vintage, check to see if they sound the same or different.
I’ll try a few different pics
