    The tube I got with no print with a fatter getter has a diamond on there, it is very hard to see. Look at the tube at different angles with a flashlight with a magnifying glass or similar. The other tube looks like it was painted prior to shipment. The glass on both tubes were the cleanest I ever seen.

    Thank you! Now let's see how long I hover over the BUY button before clicking! :grinning:

    You get your tester yet? Want us to look over the listing first? I got my pair for 100 bucks and it tested 2,700 across all triodes. 2,200 NOS on a Hickok 752/A.

    Wondering if everybody got the same U code on those Tele? Mine is U7107706U 2 U in the code.
    Same code in the listing.

    I do have a tester -- BK 700 that Bill refurbished and sold me for now and will be getting the Hickok 752 shortly. :)

    I've already purchased the pair, but would be most appreciative of any feedback. It's an ETSY purchase and I've purchased from this seller (Lowtechelec) previously. He listed them as a matched/strong pair and the measurements seemed A-OK to me. Lablels are worn off, but the requisite <> is present. Can't send a link since I've already purchased, but here are some picture snips. Let me know if there are any red flags where I should cancel. (Price was $88/pr.)

    Thanks, again.

    They look like mine, very good testing. They have a lot more weight to the sound vs the ECC801S in my gear, but they still need a burn in.
    My pair was advertised around 1,700 on a crappy Maxi Preamp 2 like the the 1 @jb77 just purchased:ksc75smile:. JK bro!

    Gosh gentlemen, had no idea recommending the ECC801S' would cause such anxiety. And AC is correct...to me, because of our different gear and different ears, the Teles sound richer and more textured than the PW Valvo 6201's, which to me sound thin and somewhat disjointed in comparison. Being an audiophile can be confusing sometimes, lol.

    And I might want to add that I have the same Woo WA2 that Bill is running. Those ECC801S sound glorious to me, funny paint or not.

    Thanks. I'm hoping they will be a nice addition to the Mullard CV4003, CIFTE 12AU7WAH and Tungsram 12AU7A's I currently have. My rig tends to lean toward the neutral side, so a bit of weight is always welcome.

    Oh, and Bill Cowen is the one that sold me the BK tester.

    Just remembered I am using the wrong cans in the MJ2, the LCD2C has very bad synergy with that amp. Got my 560`s in seems to be more weight to the music, got Tesla 6CC41 D in my dac, they are sweet like the Foton 3x mica,

    @Ripper2860 I second @TK16 the Tele smooth plates are really good tubes still burning mine in on my LP and they will definitely make my top 10 list!
