    I guess someone did not listen, as it is sold. Let me guess, you got it. The test results looked good to me?

    According to the ad it is a strong and balanced tube. In reality 1 triode was way lower than the other. 1,350 min, 2,200 NOS on my tester. 510 on 1 triode far far below the minimum good.
    Anyway bought this tube for a little more than the bad one.

    Well I thought I had them. What I have are the Brimar E88CC CV2492 tubes. Not sure what year they are but they're still a good sounding tube. Not as bright as I thought they were but I am running them with the Aeolus + MJ2 and Gumby. They have a really nice extended high end, no sibilance, a punchy bass with solid mids. Kinda holographic but a bit gritty/grainy? The best way I can explain. I like them and will probably keep them in for a while to hear what they sound like with some of my other HP's.
    Sorry bro. Wish I could have helped.

    @Wes S probably already has 100 of those. He's taken his recently granted membership in the Tube Hoarders Club quite seriously. :smile:

    Funny and yet honest opinion.

    I'm reformed, have some pairs that do not have backups and some with 1 backup pairs. Exception is Lorenz Stuttgart, 3 pairs of those, 3rd pair is mediocre testing. I can probably sell it here with made up testing numbers like some eBay sellers I have dealt with in the past. $199 free shipping a fair price!?!

    Well, on the bright side it only gets worse. A silver lining to every cloud. :slight_smile:

    Last week I scored a pair of Sylvania Gold Brand 5814As for $9.99. Got them in today and they are balanced triodes within each tube and measure closely to each other making a well matched pair. And they measured reasonably well, so not clinging to life before heading headlong into the trash bin. I'll be giving them a listen soon and see what all of Wes' hubbub is all about. :wink:

    I hope they are, grey plate - triple mica - square getters, as those are the good ones.

    Hey TK! I finally got around to rolling a 58' Holland ECC82 foil d getter / long plate, and first off it is dead silent so that was a plus. I just fired it up a couple of hours ago, but from first listen it sounds glorious, and I can already tell I am gonna like it. Seems, I might have saved the best for last! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Let the burn in begin.
