    Great thanks. I know nothing about tubes either and I'm going to do some rolling for my Beyer DT880/990's, and *future purchase* Senn HD650 and Beyer T1. Any suggestions?

    I've been playing my new 6 pack now for several hours and am truly amazed. This isn't evolution-it's revolution, in the best possible way.
    It's the best sounding combo to date I've heard.
    I started to play a Chopin CD of 8 tracks. I got to the end of the first and just had to play it over and over again-about eight times. Stunning sound. I'm so hyped up I don't think I'll be going to bed tonight. I'll share some Chopin with you all- Chopin is good for relaxing in the evening, maybe it will calm me down.

    All those headphones are perfect with Elise. It will be an enjoyable experience.
    These 2 combos are quite contrasting but I love them with HD650 and T1, as well as HE560.
    1. Siemens C3G and Tung Sol 5998
    2. Philips Miniwatt EL3N and Chatham 6AS7G or Tung Sol 7236.
    When you get adventurous, try the real Mona Lisa. You will become like @HOWIE13 , playing Chopin over and over again. [​IMG]

    I've been trying to think of one of my customary stupid comments for posting this next video. But I can't and I love it so much I'm just going to post it.
    Anyway, I've probably exceeded my video quota for the day, so I'm just going to float on down the river for the rest of the day.

    Hey pctazhp!

    This is what I was listening to when I attended my middleschool discos :joy: Catchy nonetheless!

    I've got both the Beyers and they are great with Elise. Very different cans, and between the two you will easily appreciate Elise's full range of tube rolling capabilities. I have the HD650 too and the 6 pack EL3N's suit it perfectly. No veil with Elise!
    6 pack suits the Beyers too but I find them very easy to please. You can take just about any of the combinations discussed on these forums and they will sound excellent. 
    You will be the only person to judge what's best for you though.

    Thanks for the suggestions. So is there compatibility issues with certain power and driver tubes? I'll probably just get these combo's and be done with it. I'm pretty excited.
  9. UntilThen
    These drivers will work with the power tubes. You can use them in any combinations. I've listed them here as I feel they deserve special mention. Power tubes suggested are still available. Some more pricey than others. There are better power tubes but they are quite rare and very expensive. Such as GEC 6AS7G, Bendix 6080WB and GEC 6080WB. Also Western Electric 421A. I don't think you need to go that high end 'in price' unless money is no issue.
    There are a lot of 6SN7s that sounds amazing but the better ones are very rare now and very pricey. Such as Tung Sol 6SN7gt round black plates, Sylvania 6SN7W. I have listed Sylvania 6SN7wgt which sounds good and much cheaper - at below $100 a pair.
    I did not list any Visseaux, Mazda or Fivre 6N7g as there are hardly any left on eBay. These drivers sound very good too.
    Any of the below combination will be a good start and probably all you need.

    @AltCtrl I take it you've placed your order of Elise? 
    Congrats. Welcome to the club. You won't be disappointed. [​IMG]
  11. AltCtrl
    Yeah I just ordered, how long does it take to normally get it in the states? This is my first tube amp and I've heard good things so I just decided to end game it.

    FA usually quote a 8 weeks delivery time but be prepared for 10 to 12 weeks. However we have some who have received theirs within a short time frame recently. 
    Elise sounds very good with those high impedance dynamic headphones. Even planar magnetics as shared and loved by many here. It has that liquid, moist tone that is fast and dynamic. 10 months on I'm still loving it. It will probably be the only tube amp you need.
  13. AltCtrl
    Hope its worth the wait. They must be hand crafting them to perfection.
  14. connieflyer
    they do a really great job, I don't think you will be disappointed. Lot of optionswith different tubes, my advice is go slow and listen to it for a bit before you get to deep in tube rolling, plenty of time for that. Get to know what you like about it and which direction you want to take it. Welcome aboard!
  15. Spork67
    Mine took under a month from order to delivery, all the way to Tasmania.
    Hopefully your wait will be short also.
