You know that if you are buying 5998's from AES that you are getting GE Pink base tubes, right? At least that is what they have on their website for $29.50 each. They are not identical to the Tung Sol's. I have a pair, but I haven't actually auditioned them yet, but the plate structure is definitely different. They are supposed to be the same tube electrically as the Tung-Sol 5998, but they are different looking both externally and internally.
