Sir, the rabbit hole goes deep. This place is basically a collection of tube addicts and tube anynomous rejects.

I even think @TK16 was even reported to the tube union alliance for questioning a sale on eBay.

I spoke to our union rep. TK has attained “dead man walking” status.

That’s what I do on my weekends after a few chores and activities. Pour a glass of whiskey, settle in, and start to tube roll. I just like to hear the differences between tubes.

The worse part is when I had a bit too much of the good stuff, wake up the next morning, and my desk reminds me of kids leaving their box of legos out. Tubes everywhere.

Depends how far from each other they are, but you should be able to tell over a few songs. The glow of the triodes might help too. Not always the case, but combined with listening might help you know which are which. If all else fails, try the different combinations with the same set of songs, and if you can't tell the difference at the end of it, then it doesn't matter which are which. They're either close enough, or the amp is doing a bloody good job of auto-biasing.
Thanks bro or mate since you said "bloody".
I will mix and match the 4 tubes, funny you mentioned glow, my favorite pair of WE's has 1 tube that has less glow out of all the tubes I tried. It is a 47 I think, it is used but tested good according to the seller. The 49 I bought new and untested glows like the rest of them WE's. Damn bright.

I have to get through listening to all these first, then I'll clean up. Wait...I don't have a Lyr. What am I doing here? Who are you guys? I know I got off at the Vali stop....:sweat:

@Wes S I should note that the plate current readings are usually more reflective of the glow strength rather than gm reading.

It's definitely not a reliable indicator on it's own, but if you're on the fence about a difference and you have the test results and there's a difference in the glow too, then it might confirm your suspicion of which is which. Bear in mind the glow on both triodes in the tube, not just one of them.

I have a number of tubes where the glow strength matches the plate current strength on one of my testers, I have one pair where the first triode is strong and the second triode weak, and vice versa on another tube, and the glow on each triode correlate, and similarly I have a good few perfect match tubes across all triodes where the glow is equal, but I do have some random ones where they don't seem to correlate.
