    I am kind of interested in those tubes, as well.

    I had always shied away from metal can tubes. I figured the tubes needed to be seen and glowing as part of the tube audio experience. Then I tried some Tele and Siemens C3G with black metal cans and was quite taken with their beautiful sound!

    Perhaps these painted Tele's are also the real deal. Did you happen notice the cost of the other Tele's listed at Tube Depot???:astonished: Heck, these G73r are a bargain compared to their other Tele's!:smirk:

    I just noticed some the other $$$ Tele's are out of stock.

    Another day, another exotic (= $$$) tube someone has 'found'.:head_bandage:

    I wonder what new ( sorry, make that 'old') tube will show up here tomorrow???
    Stay tuned for the next episode of "I NEED those tubes!"

    I have both RT Suresnes 5814 and 12AU7 (same sound sig) non angled getter, both have those big thick dual posts. These are treble happy and very energetic (more musical and fun compared to their Heerlen brothers). I find myself grabbing for the RT Suresnes 12AT7 more often (more laid back and tamer treble). Both are nice tubes that should not be overlooked and can be had for under $100/pr.

    Thanks for you take on the RT, mattrudy80. I am not sure I am looking for a treble happy pair until I receive a Norne silver cable in July and see how things sound with that LP and cable combo. The smooth plate (1965?) Tele's have a pretty nice top end and don't know if I want or need more energy there.

    I am trying to resist ordering a pair of those 'stealth' Tele G73R's!!!!!!!!

    What color spray paint do you want on the Tele ECC82?

    Thanks for the info! How is the bass, on those tubes? I am super treble sensitive, so not sure they are for me.

    I was hoping to do something in black, but not flat black, no..............metallic black.......... with a fade up to a bright red (also metallic) tip. This would at least allow me to 'see' the red glow I'd be missing on the top of the otherwise stealth Tele covered in paint!

    Is your turnaround time reasonable as we enter the 'slow' season for custom tube painting?

    Sounds like too much work bro, go buy a legitimate pair.

    But I wanted YOU to do this custom paint job, TK! :upside_down:
    Not some bored Tele worker in Berlin just dunking tubes in their 'special magic mojo' Tele paint.
    I'll have to ask my creative friends at 'BB' or 'MA' if they are up to doing this paint job!!! I KNOW they can do the gold pins............

    Like Henry Ford said: "Any color you want, as long as it is black" with the first Model T.

    Just rolled in the 2nd Mullard ECC82 57' Blackburn, and it is dead quiet. For $82 this thing was a steal! After coming from the Brimar, this tube just has something special, and sounds incredible! Sounds just burst, from all over the place. The bass hits hard and is the most textured I have heard. The mids are super layered and textured and the tone is hauntingly real. I can't come up with enough adjectives, to describe what all is going on. The Mullard, really has some tube magic, and is not coming out! The Brimar, is riding the bench, for a while.

    Great. Another tube that I must now purchase. My wife and bank account send their thanks. :unamused:

    That tube is highly overrated, which is why I only have 3 pairs.

    I see right through your efforts to get me out of the market so you can snag a 5th pair. Not gonna happen, buddy. As soon as I win the lotto, it's GAME-ON!! :rage:
