    Will Smith was already here, got rid of him quick. I invited him to watch the Fresh Prince of Belair marathon followed by him doing rap karaoke.

    Fresh Prince of Belair marathon? What, are you a closet masochist and run out of GE's? :relaxed:

    Empty threat, hate saying this but I'll take dimple getter Heerlen 6DJ8 variants and GE tubes for life instead of what I offered.

    I have a pair of Mullard 12AU7's with codes 6F2 B6A4 and 6F2 B6A3. Could someone please tell me when these were produced? I'm unsure if they're produced in 66' or 76' but according to the change code of 2, it appears as though it's 66. I would appreciate it if someone could confirm that. Thank you

    My money is on them, being from 66'.

    After thoroughly burning in, I am happy to report the Mullard cv2492 Mitcham Wrinkle Glass are keepers. These tubes have an incredibly layered and euphonically textured midrange, that is exactly why I got into tubes to begin with. They might be rolled a bit off the top, but everything else is perfection, and I can listen loud and fatigue free. A very fun tube, and one I will be listening with for a good while. I held off on trying these tubes for a long time, because I thought they were going to be a warm wooly mess, but that is definitely not the case. Happy hunting and rolling. :o2smile:

    Incorrect, 1866 is not the year of production

    I found some national 7dj8 in the back of a desk drawer today. I had bought these for my modulus 3A, but they weren’t a good match. Didn’t remember that I still had them. I’m sure they’ve already been written about somewhere in the preceding 1507 pages, so I’ll just mention that my first impression is very good - smooth, good depth, nice extension at both frequency extremes and an absolutely delicious midrange clarity. Think I will keep them in for a while. Not giving up on my still favorite tungsrams, just looking for a tad more scarlet in my begonias, and these might just be the ticket.
