RE: Vintage Tubes

Just some of my observations

1. although Russian EL84's are not bad, The vintage telefunkens smoke them

2. Russian el34's do not come close to mullard fat base or Amperex bugleboys

3. Although not a bad thing, Most Amperex 12AX7 and el84 tubes were actually made in Japan

4. From what I've read, the new Russian Kt66 tubes are not even a Kinkless tetrode.

5. older Russian flat top wafer style 6L6WGB 5881 sound better then an RCA black plate 6L6

6. Far as 300b, I couldn't tell you. I can't afford Westerns......)

Just what I think
