Please, reccomand me about 7233 GE NOS
 
Hi,

I need your precious raccomandations about GE 7233 NOS.
Basically this tube has all technical requisites I need . But I have not experience on it so every suggestions will be very precious for me:)
Is it good in terms of microphonicity? ( perdone me if I am annoing with microphonicity but this is my obsession !:D )

Thanks,
Paolo

Please guys,
I need your experience here.....:)

thanks,
Paolo

I doubt many people have played with it. I have a few in a box, but I've never plugged them in. But, if it has all the specs you need, then you really just need to give it a try. It would not be surprising if it is noisy, however.

Thanks:)

With noisy, do you mean thermical/ionization noise like hiss, hum ,etc?
I am not worried by this, I have fear of microphonicity, my black beast!:D

Cheers,
Paolo

The 7233 is a regulator pass tube similar to 1/2 of a 6AS7. It was used in HP sweep generators and not much else. Therefore it is somewhat uncommon and costs about $10 to $15 each. I bought some and investigated their use as output tubes. I had an amplifier running using the 7233 as the output tube in both common cathode and cathode follower configuration. For this they work quite well with no unusual noise or distortion. They may be suitable for use in low signal stages, but I have not actually tried them.

The Russian 6S19P is a similar tube with a different pinout. It costs a lot less, so I have been using it for my experiments.

hey-Hey!!!,
I have used this one in a linestage. I got four used ones from a Tek 'scope. They served very well, no noise and no misbehaviour. The linestage( and half my 7233 stock ) died when I bent my truck while transporting it.

I first tried them as output line drivers from a line stage and also as the output in a headphone amp. Good tube and no trouble with it but I found other similar types more to my taste soundwise. I've also been using them for their intended purpose as regulator tubes for around five years now and for that application I like them.
As for microphonics yes they can be but if you spend some time playing with microphonic tubes you can deal with them.

Wow , thanks tubelab, good to know it !:)

Does the 6S19P has the same (4) mu of the 7233?

P.S. My idea for it is a driver for a 100W power buffer ( 1X ) in AB/class with 2/3 pair of Sanken 16N-16P:rolleyes:

Paolo

Linestage? interesting, seems perfect in this application IMO:cool:
No microphonics ( excuse , I need datas for make "statistic")?
What brand?

Cheers,
Paolo

Please can you describe the sound of 7233 a bit?

What brand are you referring? Are some better than others in this aspect?

Thanks,
