RE: 845 replacements....

Yeah as far as rolling 845 tubes....from what I've used and heard.

Most modern chineese 845 all sound about the same, if you want real
sound from an 845 you have go with vintage grade 845's..ie. RCA or
Amperex, GE or the like. The other alternative is Cetron, if they are
still making them. Either case you gonna pay , they are not cheap.

Now I'm sorry I got rid of my Cetrons a few years back. For my
upcoming Low power 845 build, I've got a couple of early 2007 Chineese
845's and a pair of metal plate 845's, I'll use for testing and
breakin before I get serious about investing in better sounding 845's.

JMHO !!!

Have fun
