Home Tubes Asylum

Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: Did you misread the thread?

for what it is worth many years ago I had a set ... in a word, meh.

Metal 6L6 are ugly but they sing beautifully. During this time I had a quad of Chinese ST shoulder 6L6 and they walked all over the 6P3S, but as usual for most Chinese glass back then; in less than a year, three of the four died.

I HAVE had one metal 6L6 short out which caused the amp to catch on fire and dim the lights in the living room {was not in the listening room} which alerted me to the above. Am now slightly perturbed that I can't see what is going on inside the metal tubes.
