All good..walking over to the MAil Box and see what todays roll is gonna be.. :) (probably the deodorant I ordered from Amazon) :D
Well, that's not as exciting as new tubes, but trust me....we're all glad you're getting deodorant.

Coolness! We'll be (im)patiently waiting for your sonic evaluation. :grimacing:

That tape routine gets under my skin too. Usually it's old enough that you have to scrape it off. And I've even received ones where they put the tape over the silkscreening on the glass. When I get those, I want to call Guido and Vinnie for a friendly 'educational' visit with the seller. :laughing: :laughing:

Received another 6C8G today. 1934 JAN National Union. Sounds wonderful like the Tung-Sol.

Also my third 6C5G arrived. A National Union. Listening now with the Tung-Sol 6C5G and sounding really nice on the winged-c. Hmm maybe better than the 5998 but too early to say. I’m looking forward to listening more to these when I get a matching pair. So far, yes great value.

Edit: put the 5998 back on and it does bring out more of the high-end. Pick these up for a low price and see how you like them.

I need a pair and more demoing. I’m looking forward to listening more to these when I get a matching pair. So far, yes great value.
NU are very nice, excellent grab. How do you read the dates on these tubes? Mine have OO (OQ?) under the 6C8G emblem and on the base 1C 🤔

Good question. The seller had it listed as “1934 TWINPLEX” but the box does say date accepted March, 1945.

I also bought from an ebay dealer who listed "1934 TWINPLEX" on several 6C8G's. I bought two Tung-Sol's that were labeled as such in the title of the ad. I highly doubt they were from 1934 because the 6C8G tube type was supposedly registered in 1937 (https://www.radiomuseum.org/tubes/tube_6c8g.html).

yeah agreed. Likely 40s. I wonder if he’s listing the equipment he pulled them from.
