Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

Not really...

Just mentioned how they suck in my system, suggesting that caution is advised.

As to why this is I don't know, unless I purchased two pairs, from different reputable tube dealers, which are all defective in a specific way. (their sound was exactly alike).

If Jim can see, as he states, how they would not perform well in my amp's circuit he's not been "informative" as to why this would be.

Used many 12at7 types with different sonics, and all have been fine/listenable (many meaning: many, many, many).

As the 4024's would seem to be exactly the same as 12at7wa (per Duncan), I'd expect them to @ least be listenable.

Tried the remaining pair this evening (with the thick/sloppy sounding Ken-Rad/RCA dual/separate flat plate 2A3's my wife loves) and the results were again unlistenable.

When I get around to upgrading the iron/adding chokes to my amps I will take measurements with the 4024's operating in circuit (compare such to other 12at7's) as this may shed some light on the problem.

Jim's second post is indeed hissy.
