    Legitimate ECC801S owners, do your Teles light up well in the dark? Almost WE 396A brightness? They are really perty to look at in the dark.

    With all of the talk regarding the Telefunken ECC801S tubes for the seller in India, I decided to post picture of the ones I got from him
    This is the “first tube”

    And here is the “second tube” for the Telefunken ECC801S

    Thanks just rolled them! Listened for a few min and I can tell what everyone on both sides “so to speak” are talking about, they are “thinner sounding” with a little more emphasis or with the thinner sounding appear to have more emphasis on the upper regions! But there is a lot of detail in these tubes! Going to let these burn in and listen again later!

    Calling fakes on both tubes, is the paint dry on them? Are they the same code as mine?

    ooooohhhhhh ................ ssssssshhhhhhhh********ttttttttt ..................

    Edit: I mean, I hope its not true! But sorry, lol. After traveling in India for a month a decade ago, one thing I learned is that Indians know how to hustle like no others. Again, hope it aint true. But I guess you can return 'em ...................................................................... right?

    I bought a pair of 60s RCA 12au7s from Lowtechelec, received good tubes. But not in boxes. they were wrapped in newspaper and twisted on the end like tootsie rolls. :relaxed:

    Really? JC bro, make up your mind already.
    I worked in psych hospitals for 11 years. And yer kind of reminding me of some people :anguished:

    Yeesh. :yum::v:

    "Oh Schiit, so it`s may be possible, to laser cut some diamonds on this USA tube if it exists and sell them, hope not. Seen pics of GE make, they have much bigger getter flash and hard to see the getter. No U code either. Guessing they don't have the same distinct getter and getter wires?
    Found this but pics gone."

    "Initial impressions 2 hours in are not good, can tell close to 100% if I am going to like a tube 2 hours or less time. As they are now they would not crack my top 22 list. Got 2 pair of Telefunken in that list. tilted towards the high end, recessed mids, muddy bass. Tubes did appear to look like NIB when I looked at them. Hope burn in helps. Maybe I`m just used to listening to warmer tubes and need to adjust. Did anybody else have this initial impression with those Indian Tele ECC801S?"

    "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."

    Hi, Is this a legit Siemens CCA Holly Grail ? 1938957_2fcbd451-d368-4a18-b91a-88e9afc1f686_980_980.jpg 1938957_d643ae24-4958-4803-a0b8-5468e65c5923_980_980.jpg

    They look like 2 CCa, 1 has no paint. There will be codes on the metal on each tube what are they? Is there any faint CCa on the no paint tube. 3rd tube is an A frame later year. You might be able to pair up the first 2 tubes. A CCa is a selected E88CC.
