  1. Taffy the tramp
    Ok Thanks for the tip I'll start looking now
    Ok thanks I'm having trouble finding Sylvania 7236 , can find Tung sol 6SN7GTB £35,00
  2. Taffy the tramp
    Thanks guys tung sol 6SN7GTB would NIS be better ,and , have heard somewhere different countries make the same valves Tung Sol 6SN7GTB where are they made if more than 1 which country us the best ,tanks again
  3. JKDJedi
    Yes, now I'm wondering if you were just asking about the preamp tube (the front tube). Because the 7236 tubes are only for power, the tube that sits in the back.
  4. Taffy the tramp
    Many thanks guys ,your freely given nowledge Is well received

    No I've bought the Tung sol 6SN7GTB NEW OLD STOCK values (a pair 1 spare) ,I do not have the amp yet sooo I need the other valve suggestion please when you say the valves and codes I'm lost sorry
  5. Taffy the tramp

    Well on the darkvoice - there are two tube slots right? the 6SN7 which is the driver tube. And the 6AS7 which is the power tube.
    The power tube (6AS7). You can try to find a Thomson 6080 tube. They are a France made tube (maybe more readily available in UK) A buddy of mine said they can help bring that sparkle/airy in the top range. And I believe they may be inexpensive as well.

    For the 6AS7 tube you can use 6080, 7236 among others tubes as equivalents.

    In general, using a 6080 or 7236 tube for the power tube (the one in the back) will brighten the sound up some, compared to a 6as7g. The Tung Sol 7236 is a really nice tube (I think the Sylvana is a rebranded Tung Sol, but I could be wrong. Happy listening!
  8. JKDJedi
    No their not the same, I have both of them.

    You guys forgot to mention GEC 6AS7G, WE 421A, Tung Sol 421A, Tung Sol 5998 for power tubes :D.....they're supposed to be the best, but very pricey though...
