RE: Help identifying Shindo nos tubes for Montrachet

That it blew A fuse in an RM-9 is not a critical problem - the fuse was installed for two reasons: 1: to protect the amp from a run-away bias, and 2: to deal with 'Lint Shorts' where a piece of lint or other gets caught between the screens or plate and screen of a power tube .
This is more common among some tubes than others- though I have had my fair share w/ Siemens tubes in RM-9s...

They are wonderful tubes, and I keep at least one spare set for my amp.....
Happy Listening
