    Is the password still 'GE_RULES' or did you change it? :smiley:

    Had an $88 max bid put in last 5 seconds, even if it's mediocre to decent testing it's worth it.

    Consider the socket savers a permanent addition to your rig. Taking them out only increases the wear on the sockets which is what you’re trying to avoid. And on the Lyr 2, the additional height boost makes it a lot easier to extract tubes.

    For anyone who missed out on the first batch,
    Tubemonger 12**7 to ECC88 adapters are back in stock!

    Link:https://www.tubemonger.com/12Axx_to...IB_1960s_p/12axx-ecc88-adap-novib-mcmurdo.htm

    This is a review I posted on Tubemonger’s website regarding their new adapters:

    “These are by far the best adapters I have used period and I have used several different types. The build quality on these adapters is phenomenal, having the same overall build, including the vibration resistant base as their socket savers. The vibration resistant base has helped reduce issues, for myself and others I know with microphonic tubes. These adapters have the potential to help reduce noise in microphonic tubes. Overall these are my go to 12**7 adapters, as they have replaced all of my other 12**7 to ECC88 adapters. The build quality is phenomenal and on par with their socket savers! These are highly recommended!”

    I’ll have some reviews and more detailed recommendations for you in the near future as I purchased some of Tubemonger’s top rated 12AX7, 12AT7, and 12AU7 Tubes to go along with the CV4033

    So far I have been very happy with these tubes mentioned below: (will have reviews for them soon)

    For 12AX7:

    Seems like all of the threads I follow are in “summer hibernation”

    @TK16 bought all the good tubes. All that's left are some 80's vintage Chinese tubes (remains of the 99% that were rejected by the military). They're still cheap, but the best ones only give you around 200 hours of awful sound before they go poof so you need to buy them by the case.

    Don't know about that? I seen at least 2 or 3 people here in the last year buying holy grails. A couple pairs got away. GE and Chinese quality tubes are mostly left though. Since I already own enough pairs of each, (0 and 0), I'll leave these gems for you guys.

    Another oxymoron. :smiley:

    Actually, there are a number of people having some nice things to say about the sound of some current production Chinese-made tubes, although the prices being asked for them are in the same territory as NOS gems and given a choice I'd spend *my* money on the NOS.

    And this is just a personal thing, but I absolutely refuse to buy a Chinese-made anything that is an obvious and blatant rip-off copy of someone else's work, whether it's an outright counterfeit attempt or not. Lots of that on Ebay these days.
