Brent might of been a great seller in the past, but now I would not consider buying from him again. Stock may be depleted on some tubes and selling bottom of the barrel stuff as NOS testing like the pair I got recently.

Hi,

Just checking to see if our resident experts had an opinion on which of these Mullard 12AX7's I should go for (same price, same tube) or any other comments or concerns. These would be used in my Aesthetix Calypso preamp. Thanks in advance.

I am no expert on 12AX7 tubes, however I have been very happy with these tubes from Tubemonger: Tungsram ECC83 12AX7 - MINT NOS NIB RARE Sept 1962 Welded Plate Tubes - Hungary.
https://www.tubemonger.com/Tungsram_SEP_1962_ECC83_12AX7_Welded_Plates_NOS_HU_p/1324.htm
Plus Tubemonger is a trusted site and they currently have a 10% off sale going on.

Happy Labor Day, my fellow tube rollin buddies!

Just fired up the Holland ECC82 Long Plate D Foil Getter 58', and this tube continues to impress. I love everything about it, and can't get enough!

Happy Rolling and Listening.

And HLD 2U2. Oh, sorry....wrong thread. :slight_smile:

Can't you guys gloat about a tube I actually already have for once? Sheeez. I mean there are some good GE tubes. Surely? Just 'cause I haven't found any yet doesn't mean they don't exist. :smile:

You keep forgetting I only buy cheap tubes. Not 'cause I'm cheap, just that I pinch pennies. Unless it comes to 300B's, in which case my bank becomes very afraid. :slight_smile:

Just bought these. Haven't ever tried any 6N23's, which is more of a direct sub for a 6DJ8/6922 than the 6N1P. Not sure if the Voshkod Rockets are better than the Reflektors, but these were cheap enough to give a whirl.

Have not heard great things about them, they are decent to good tubes compared to the best Reflektor/Foton 3x 50`s 6N3P. These are extremely good tubes. 6N23P tubes have a high chance of technically dead to decent testing and noisy. You may get lucky though, The ones I`m referring to are the 74/75 Reflektor 74/75 tubes.
