Cool. I'll check em out sometime. I'm using a set of the same thing as the RUBY 6550A-STR in a 70's Marshall and like em. I've read em being marketed as a GE 6550A clone. I also like the RUBY 12AX7AC7 HG in some amps both hifi and instrument amps. I have em labeled golden dragon and a few other things.

You would like the Genelex reissue KT88s as well.Jim McShane has the best ones because nobody can match and test the way he does and do it at full operating voltage which is important.

Michael, the solid plate Shuggies are still available! The tubestore.com has commissioned a run from the factory now called The Preferred Series KT88. They say it is exactly the same tube as the Penta Labs KT88SC. Even comes with a 6 month warranty! Great sounding tubes that have never given me any trouble.
The black treasures and Psvanes, on the other hand have been nothing but trouble for me in my Rogue amp. Maybe it is the high plate voltage on the Rogues, these new fancy Chinese tubes just can't seem to take it.
Mike, I know that this is off topic but do you mind if I contact you sometime and pick your brain about a grounding issue that has been driving me nuts?
Back on topic. I've only heard the GL reissue one time and that was in a bass amp I cleaned and biased etc for a friend but it was way too late to let it fully rip. They did sound more mellow than the Sovtek 6550we's they replaced though.
