    Who cares about those crappy-a$$ Mullards. I'm goin' for the GE's and getting the Philips as backups.

    I'll send pics of the blood stains on my shoulders as soon as I get them.

    :relaxed:

    Is it safe to say that Mullards are just 'ducky'? :wink:

    The 5-star CIFTE's are quite nice. Great for an amp that's a little on the warm side and needs a little sparkle.

    Bill has been known to add a 6th star and sell them on eBay as rare and highly sought-after, so be careful. :smirk:

    Only buy from European sellers, they always have the lowest prices on Blackburn ECC82 square getters.

    So one should not by them from sellers in NJ? :confused:

    The 6-star CIFTE's are unobtanium and cost more than a Ferrari. But if anybody wants some, let me know so I can get to work on the extra star.

    Great, NOW ya tell me!
    I have bought 2 pairs of Blackburn ECC82 from domestic sellers. I do understand that there would be more plentiful in the UK.
    I will have to go to E-Bay UK and France more often if I want to snag my 3rd pair I suppose!

    Still lusting for those Black Beauty Tele's however! :yum:

    I will keep the CIFTE in mind if, after an aftermarket Norne silver cable, I still am looking for a little more sizzle on top!

    Mid 70's Tesla E88CC will give you all the sizzle you could ever want a much much more. Then you can chase it down with some LM Ericsson 2C51 square getter. Have painkillers handy, the stronger the better.

    Well, it looks like I have to eat crow, on this comment. :wink: The Mullard is to good, to only have 1 backup. The search continues. . .

    I would have figured, you already had a huge stash of these! They are legit, and the only other tube, I have heard, that had magic like this, is the WE396A.
