Thanks guys, tried them tonight. Killer mids

64.12.96.10

I went ahead and jumped on a lot of them. Was not going to play 'em until I tested them tomorrow, but after hearing everyone say how solid the other models of Japanese tubes were and since the bottles were beautiful and pins nice and straight I went ahead and replaced my Amperex Orange Globe Halo getter w/ a pair. While not quite as extended on top (sometimes a good thing w/ digital) I was very shocked at all the midrange DETAIL and richness from these puppies! Background vocals were more delineated than the Holland tubes and all kinds of air surrounded Eva Cassidy, Rambling Jack Elliot and Sara K.! I'll test the whole bunch over the weekend, but from all I'm hearing the reject rate is pretty awesome w/ these little Japanese jewels. Not saying I'm selling my Amperex, Siemens, and Telefunken stash, but at these prices I have to agree that they KILL the old Sovtecs (which cost 3x these prices) I have around and absolutely no comparison to the few new production I've heard. Just the ticket to keep around for those late nights when you want to roll something in the rig to kick back w/ some vocal favorites. I'll see how they rock n' roll after the testing THANKS for all the input!
