    With the tubes you have, I would stay away from any dimple getter tube. At best they are mediocre to what you have and/or they are the worst tubes I ever heard personally on my equipment. Those 50`s disc getter Siemens you will probably have a great experience imo.

    PS: not a joke post.

    Thank you guys for your inputs.

    I bought my tubes back in august 2015 from rb2013, guy who make them popular before he left this site. Tubes was tested on his tube tester Sencor TC-162 with no short and gas leak. I remember he post picture of full box of tubes what do not pass testing.

    For last 18 months this was my prime tubes on my amp, and I used them aprox. 1000hrs. Also get update from amp manufacturer, and they found the second failure was a result of an incomplete repair of the first failure.

    Unfortunately I do not have tube tester, mostly for the reason I settle down with my favorites, and don't "hunting" for tubes any more. It is anybody here who can retested them for me? I can do that in person( living on northeast NJ) or by the mail, I will appreciate, thinking if they pass testing they still can be usable.

    Btw. if somebody have for sale one pair tested of 6N23P - HG '75 reflektor SWGP silver shields tubes, can send me PM, I will interest to buy.

    Shoot me a PM. I'm in NC so you'd have to ship them, but I'd be happy to test them for you.

    Will you be declaring the 'highly sought-after tubes" as failed and then keeping them for yourself as you did with me? :unamused:

    J/K -- @bcowen is a good and honest gentleman. Pay no mind to they say about him here on HF or at Interpol. :smirk:

    Can a tube that blows out amps do any major damage to a tester or a fuse would blow to protect the tester? I know you have me on ignore maybe someone here can quote this post so @bcowen can see it? :ksc75smile:

    I would never have you on ignore, @TK16 . Ripper, yes, but not you. :relaxed:

    With most vintage testers (including your 752), as long as you do a shorts test first and don't hit the GM button with a shorted (or very high leakage) tube, chances of damaging the tester are very slim. The #81 bulb protects from overcurrent -- it should flash bright and burn out if such a condition exists, and the #49 bulb should protect the bias pot in a fault condition in the same way. Just be sure you have genuine 81's and 49's in there and never do a GM test on a shorted tube.

    I'm afraid that I'm no longer in the market. @bcowen PM'ed me and offered a Sky Blue empty box for $125. Jumped on it before he could retract his offer to sell. :ksc75smile:
