Dunno if this will help you much... but I find the vintage French ECC83 to sound a lot like the same vintage Dutch Amperex ECC83. Which is very good. Long lasting, too.
Hi FenderLover, As a matter of fact that helps a lot. As I've gone through the usual suspects like Mullard and Telefunken's and found that to my ears, I preferred the tone of either Tungsram - Mazda ( Silver Plated ) - RCA and CBS/Hytron 12AX7's more. Yet I was following something were it seems you're quite fond of the Raytheon JAN - 5751 ( BPT
M and Windmill Getter 5751's ) and 12AX7 Long Black Plates ( Sq. Getter NOS 1950's ) as well. So in my mind your recommendation makes prefect sense. Thanks for taking the time to voice said opinion, as I'm not new to this - but I haven't covered all of the options, so it's all about gaining extra insight into the unknown. Regards,Oscar
French make very good bottles. Some even don't have wine in them.
Hi FenderLover, The thanks goes to you. I just know its time to give them a try - I'm aware that Joe's Tube Lore talks more about those 5751's as being the only real options, but a part of me has questioned his words to this day - so I've to find out for myself what's the truth. Here goes nothing. Be well, Oscar
