I want to see a spiral getter. Then I'll be impressed.

Easy bro!

First impression of AC's Tesla ECC88's...me likey. A lot. Ballsy. If these aren't even burned in at all yet, I'm scared.
Aren't they good? I think they were the first tubes I bought from AC.

Not hugely impressed with the Voskhod 6N2P triple micas. Close to 100 hours burn and still rather too bright for my tastes. The MiniWatts probably spoiled me. Weirdly, they give off a static noise when I turn the pot on the Lyr 2. No other tubes do that. Problem, or just weird?

The Tesla ECC88’s do snare drums like nothing I’ve heard before. Really project the woody crack and the subtle ghost notes. A bit brighter and somewhat more congested than the Foton 3x’s at their present stage of burn-in. Vocals are incredibly “present”.

Once they've burned in, you should notice the same level of detail retrieval on everything. The detail retrieval on them is incredible. I haven't heard many tubes as competent at detail and separation as them.

It's due to the gain factor, they have a much higher gain factor. It should only happen on high gain. If you switch to low gain, it shouldn't happen. @rnros mentioned that when I was about to try them.

Holding out for a YYZ triple getter myself.
Only available from a very old electronics shoppe in Toronto. It's located in a secret room in the basement of an even older bakery on Yonge St. ... not at the corner of Danforth & Pape, as many have discovered much to their chagrin.

Should you complete this quest, and if you ask nicely, you can see Ged's triple neck Rickenbacker (not to be confused with Chris Squire's or John Paul Jones' 3x) :wink: Rush on!

Anybody interested in a strong matched pair of LM E's gold pin? Tubes are microphonic so hence the discount. USA lower 48. $90 plus $7.20 Priority Mail. Tube dampers help with the microphonics as well as the Tube Monger socket savers. The cheap Chinese 5670 to ECC88 help also. Will not eliminate the micro but they help. Also got a pair of steel pin LM E's. 1tube is microphonic. $70 plus 7.20 Priority Mail lower 48. PM if interested.
Both sets are the early square getter.
Edit: price lowered.

Hey there,
I got some random tubes that turned out to be special enough for a little description and pictures
6DJ8, M3624, triple mica, silver shield, o getter, toshiba from japan, electron tubes 7d (don't know what that means) and I don't know if there are equivalent from more sought after tubes
Not the most amazing tubes on earth but A+ separation and focus
great details and precision
soundstage seems average/normal, not small, not big
crisp, clear, snappy drum, and the cymbals are most important attribute to these tubes, sound like they are made of real gold, never heard cymbals like that before
the sustain last, the reverb is also present, not as much as some 75 reflektor I have tried, but the feel that the sound bounce on the walls is present
they are as rythmicaly musical and nuanced as you can get

the only problem is the sound is over polished, a little on the cold side with some harshness.
vocals are affected negatively, sounds like one layer is missing

Good tubes nevertheless. Great cheapies! I got 3 of them for about $15. Here are some pictures if you can help identify a more well known equivalent:

37893698_1176139972543929_5440710681894584320_n.jpg

...seems like the hotter they get the better they sound. After an hour or 2 the bass increased and the higher region is less harsh.
