Default WTT: EF804 (Tele) for EF86/6267

I have three NOS (original boxes are pretty dog-eared, but they ARE original boxes) Telefunken EF804 tubes.

I was thinking of using them in an amp design; however, I think it would be a better idea to use an EF86, because of its commonality with OTHER equipment I own (Eico HF22, Heathkit SP2, etc). So, I would like to trade, tube-for-tube, for some good EF86 or equivalents.

I know they're just about equivalent, from a functional sense... but I would prefer to have the same pin-out on all the amps... so, I would like to swap out my EF804s for a good set of EF86s. I would need something Philips-built... Amperex, Valvo, Mullard, etc. Don't NECESSARILY have to be NOS... as long as they TEST as new and are NOT MICROPHONIC.

If anyone is interested in this swap, please contact me. I know the EF804 is probably the better tube from a performance standpoint... but the EF86 is a known quantity for me, and I'd rather go that way...

Thanks!

Regards,
Gordon.

If you still need the EF86's in exchange for EF804's, let me know.
I'm not in need of either inasmuch as I have lots of both, I'm just extending a "hand across the water" (well,...Land).
The only good thing about getting older is that I have an amazing amount of tube audio stuff (3000+ square feet to the 12' ceilings) which I loved enough the first time it was "cool" to haul it around with me all these years.
Peace,
DrRick

One is still available at this point... the person who inquired has let me know that they are, at this point, uncommitted, so it's still officially unclaimed.

As I will have posted elsewhere too- I am also willing to trade this last tube for a good-condition Western Electric 5842/417A... it doesn't have to be NOS, just test somewhere near new... that would be fine, too...

Thanks!

Regards,
Gordon.
