In Reply to: RE: AFAIK, Mullard made ECC33, not 6SN7GT posted by FenderLover on June 19, 2017 at 22:16:58
I would include the ECC32 as well, made by Mullard which many use as a 6SN7.
Mullard was actually a brand of Philips, which made a lot of tubes for Brimar including some labeled as 6SN7GTs. These are presumably true 6SN7GTs. By comparison the ECC32/33 have different electrical parameters and are not 6SN7s. I am told to be cautious using them because ofthat. It is sad because I really like the sound of the few Mullard ECC32s I have.
Just got the two tubes today, and thank you very much. I believe that these were made by RCA back in the day, maybe Chatsworth plant. That is where my Gold Aero 5998A were made. Have not had enough time to tell for sure, need more burn in, but these are sounding very good. Bass is solid and mid's and treble are nicely balanced. Gold Aero when made by RCA were part of their Premium line. These are indeed sounding very good. Such a deal, could not believe that no one jumped on these. $10 shipped and paypal besides even if they were not this good could not pass, an now really glad I did. Sound very similar to RCA Silver label Gt's from 1948, not quite as warm. Thanks again!
Glad the tubes worked out for you. I can't figure out why no one else wanted them either. I guess most folks are to suspicious that the deal is so good, something must be wrong, or something like that-
Now to all those that missed out on the deal, it's the old saying EAT YOUR HEART OUT!
Well, they were right side up when I viewed them!
