Re: My findings: JJE34L, JJ6CA7, EH6CA7, JJKT77, Mullard EL34's

I know this is an old thread, but just tried a pair of the new Svetlana El34 (not winged C’s), and they have that very high brittle sound to them...almost like a harsh whistle...that you can’t dial out. Maybe this is inherent in all of these new sensor made tubes? Would love some =C=‘s!

Re: Has any one bought NOS tubes from E-bay?

I didn't really believe the NOS hype, but a friend of mine gave me several old tubes from the 80's, and I tried them out in V1 and V2. One tube was a Philips, and the other was a Sylvania 12AX7WA. I must say that I was impressed...the sound just seems alot more rich and sweet than the stock Marshall...
