They WE come up all the time. NOT as cheap as the pair you bought, however.
I have a search and notification set.
If you want I can give you $10 off the WE JW 1951 pair I have for sale, a proper testing pair. JW designation was made for the military. If your interested shoot me a PM.
If I was looking for some WE tubes, I would jump all over TK's JW WE. Those are killer tubes!
So the tube that dethroned my beloved Mullard ECC82 57' Blackburn, is the 60' Sylvania 5814a/Gold Brand/Triple Mica Grey Plate/Square Getter. The Sylvania is magical! The sound is so real, it puts you right there in the venue with the musicians, and the headphones just disappear. Very clear, dynamic and balanced, while staying smooth and non fatiguing, with all the magic of a "holy grail" tube.
Happy Friday and tube rolling!
Hah. I actually have one of those tubes. Only one, however as the pair I bought yielded one bad tube. Guess I'll be looking for a partner.
I have some '52's. So there.
And I'm not sending pics 'cause I'm lying.
Seems like you're always looking for a partner.
ECC82 Fivre Black plate square getters from early 50s are quite great btw
So are my early 1950s ECC81 marconi with square getters
(Speaking of tubes you guys don't own)
Edit: But for real you got me excited to listen to them again xD And I'm enjoying them a lot right now
The tube with the black plates here https://www.ebay.com/itm/123855443686 is a 1955. I have a pair 1951 (code 181) /1954 (code 400) where the getter is "horseshoe" and parallel to the mica. The ECC81 early 50s marconi from italy have the same parallel horseshoe getter.
Here's another one https://www.ebay.com/itm/382553386936 later batch perhaps from 1954 again.
EditN: The Cossor 1955 just got here K61 B5H, the 1956 probably won't get here for a while though. I bet the 7316 long plates are better than all of these though
I sense a twinge of jealousy in your post, Bill.
Dammit!! Well, you can hit up TK for your cut of the action as I've consummated the deal and made the JWs mine. In addition, I snagged a pair of NOS '49 WE's from another Head-fi'er -- so ...
DEAD MAN WALKING when wifey finds out.
I already have one, thanks. But it's kinda like tubes....you're always wondering if there's something better out there.
Well, something better is here right now my friend. Attached is a pic of me at the pool in my speedo. Something for you to contemplate.
Somehow the URL Blocker can't make me un-see the visualization of that. Fortunately my trash can was within close reach so I didn't throw up all over my desk.
Oh, well. Your loss. I thought it was rather tastefully done. Sensual without being overly erotic and all with a subtle 'come-hither' quality..
