    Hello Mike I'm currently listening to my Brimar 6SC7GT's, Their sound is really excellent almost like a TS 6C8G but smoother like say an ECC31, my current combo is GZ37 fat bottle,TS 5998, and the Brimar 6SC7GT. I'll admit it's definitely one of my favorite driver tubes. If you can find a source for either a Brimar or Mullard get them they do imo have the best sound of the 6SC7's, the Fivre is good also not as good though. If I run across some I'll let you know also on the adapters I got these -> .http://www.ebay.com/itm/1pc-Gold-pl...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    For me their worth having I'm getting tired of my TS 6C8G's also the 6F8G's RCA's, Sylvania, & some Ken Rad I guess I've gotten used to my ECC31,32,35's the others seem to all sound the same, The 6SC7's are a new sound I like, I'll say this if you can find a Brimar or Mullard set and don't enjoy them I'll buy them from you including the adapters..enjoy

    i found some Tung Sol 6SC7GT black glass possibly wanted to try those .As for the adapters that is usually where i buy them because these days you get decent shipping speed .To bad those adapters dont have the better quality CMC sockets .Those tubes are kinda rare ,i have a tube seller i do business with over here and he only had the steel casing ones and only 5 of them .will definitely be looking out for those Brimars and Mullards thanks for the infos .

    My response, which may be unpopular. I do not mean insult or offense.

    Buying a Woo WA22 is purchasing the best platform you can buy. Looking at these cheap tubes is like a Ferrari owner buying gas at Arco, or tires at Big O.
    Save up for the good stuff. Check the Reference 6SN7 thread on Head-Fi. Drivers are $200-400 a pair.

    I say their are quite a few inexpensive tubes that are very good, one doesn't need to spend lots on rare tubes to get a good sound. An example might be say a pair of metal envelope 6SC7's 20-30., a Brimar 5Z4GY rectifier 35., maybe a pair of Mullard 6080's 80. that's under 150. for a really nice sound, tube rolling is one of best parts of owning a wa22..

    How would you compare Ken Rad Black Glass 6SN7 against Mullard ECC32 ? the price is nearly the same.
