    I see where Tube Monger has Tele 6211. Anyone using these Tele's particularly in the LP?

    I have 1965 Tele smooth plate 12AU7's arriving later this week, so I may wait until I hear the Tele's 'house sound' in the LP before I go off and buy MORE!:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    No carpet? I assumed there would be carpeting involved. Going to withdraw my $68 offer.

    Put a pair of Tungsram NOS 7DJ8 tubes in ....
    has a big full sound fleshed out to every edge of the huge SS.
    The SQ is a tad soft, but as I said, it is fleshed out, giving a sense of presence and continuity.
    Kind of like the Amperex 7308s IME. Also dead quiet.

    Sounds best with modern (eg CD) recordings, and smaller groups or singer singer writer acoustics.

    Test music:
    Bowie- Heathen, 2002
    Neil Young - acoustic sets, Live at Massey Hall, Live at Sugar Mtn
    Dexter Gordon - Both sides of Midnight, 1967

    Yeah, but how do they sound with good music? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue:

    Ha! So far as I know, I’m the only one here that actually listens to music. :owl:
    I mean, nobody ever posts the tunes they listen to! :boom:
    (Marilyn Manson? What):alien:

    Hey all you 12au7 fans! Has anyone compared the Mullard CV491 square getter long plate to the Mullard ECC82 square getter long plate, both from Blackburn? Is it worth the extra cash, for the CV491?

    Afaik it is the same tube. CV491 military designation. ECC82 civilian version. Don't know if there are any sonic differences between the 2.

    Thanks, that's what I am thinking, too. However, tighter military tolerances can yield slight differences in sound, as can be heard with the USA Amperex 6922 vs. 7308.

    Got the Brimar ECC82 1955 square getters up to 170 hours, got them at 7th place on my list. Well worth a try around $100ish a pair.
