Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: 12Ax7 Baldwin Raytheon Japan - Toshiba or NEC?

You're more than welcome........, as someone whom as far back as 2004, gained the assistance of learning about certain makes of tubes from around the globe | having the willingness to explore said brands according to the different factories within any given country, it became very very clear, that say for example the most commonly found Mullard based designs are from their Blackburn factory, when in fact there were 2 other factories producing Mullard tubes which are more desirable amongst those in the know, which only than pursue the versions made within these two " only ", hence again the logic of certain makes being available, as these same music lovers, simply don't settle for 2nd or 3rd best.

Case in point, while some praise the 5751's, I've always found them lacking in dynamic capabilities, and much preferred to use a standard 12AT7 | E81CC as a means of lowering the gain | noise within certain makes of 5751 types........, the only exception to the rule was coming across a quad of TEN Kobe 5751's, which were the only version I'd ever live with, or remotely allowed within spitting distance of my system.

Enjoy the quest.
