Default Battery tubes

Hi,

I've some 1J6G and 1G6GT battery tubes.
I'd like to use them in my 2A3 amp.
Do you guys have experience with these.

Thanks
Jim

Default Sorry. No.

I've looked at the curves for battery valves, and they didn't look promising...

Another way to look at it is to realise that valves are only slightly noisier than transistors, but that they operate with x10 supplies, which automatically gives them greater dynamic range. Battery valves don't have this advantage.

Still, if you've got them, try them out, and see what happens.

Conversely this is why, when transistors, mosfets mostly, are run at higher voltage rails sound much more dynamic and alive.

Cheers,
