RCA, GE, Mullard, Telefunken
I was very fortunate a week or so back when a family friend gave me a bag of old RCA, GE and other classic sounding preamp tubes, AU's, AT's and plenty of AX7's, I went through most of the lot and picked out an old Mullard from the 60's - it went in V1; an RCA Blackplate from the 50's - sweet in V2. The only thing I've heard that compares in my old Plexi clone is the old smooth plate Telefunken I had in V1 which, as fate would have it, got broke when it jumped outta my hand as I was going to compare it to these, one last time... Awesome stuff, NO comparison to ANY of those new tubes that are being hyped... etc, etc. Nice glass: Beauty.
