    I use the LCD3. Try power tubes such as Tung Sol 5998 or 4 * 6BL7's. Also try a higher gain driver such as the ECC35. I get great results.

    Perhaps my favorite tubes. Too rare and expensive to use though. They are now safely in storage and will be sold at a later date or plundered in case emergency funds are ever required.

    Maybe the Vibb Eaters Mini stops vibrations from the transformer? I had vibration problems with my WA22 when I first got it, but it's been fine since I upgraded the power cord and added a power filter. A tech I know mentioned that I could open up the top and fill the compartment with something like this:

    I've never had problems with using Glenn 6F8G adapters (I have 3 different sets) with TSRP 6C8G's and NU6F8G's. No hum or buzz at all.
     
    The 596 buzzed when using with 6C8G's. Just too many wires. A damn shame as it sounded freakin amazing.

    I've never heard of a vibration from the transformer issue. Is it a hum sound? I do get that on occasion. Not often. Not enough to annoy.
     
    Could you actually do what you said above?

    I thought these were interesting. They are a RCA 6SL7. Perfectly usable as drivers. I was looking for 6SL7's to go with the 596 rectifier.
     
    These have the same plates as the NU6FG (a sweet sounding tube). I think these plates were made by RCA as I see it in a few of their tubes. I suspect NU purchased plates from RCA and used in their 6F8G then got the reputation.
     
    Probably a great sounding tube. Has anyone tried?

    Rockin the ECC32's and TS 5998's! Where did you get the vibration bands from?
     
  11. leftside
    I've got a pair of Mullard 6SL7's. They work great.
     
  12. Badas
    596, GEC 6080 and is that TSRP's?
     
    I bet that sounds great.

    Visiting Pearl Harbor memorial today, in the bowels of a WWII submarine, and I spy this in the Equipment locker:

    A closer inspection reveals this:

    All I can think is: what would that sound like in the WA22?
