RE: Hitachi 6SN7GTB question: Top getter vs bottom getter tube


Your letting our secret out concerning the quality listening available in Japanese tubes :) BTW, if you like those tubes when they come in the mail, I see there is a lone tube on ebay being sold as a " Raytron 6SN7GT " It is being sold " as is " But the price isn't bad. Not sure what yours looks like from the top, but it appears to be the same as yours. I have a bunch of Japanese tubes stamped " made in usa " but clearly Japanese. Strange what companies did back then.

Speaking of Bad Boys: I purchased 6 pair of these tubes in the pic about 10 years ago for $16 a pair! I still haven't figured out what they are other than something out of the 50s-60s era. They are labeled Haltron, so they could be from anywhere. My guess is they are Russian. I can tell you they spanked the Bad Boys in a A/B test in my pre!
