Lightbulb help me identify some vintage tubes // need suggestions for possible applications!


just got home from an old antique store in town, and the old lady working there gave me a case full of old tubes.

i dont know if some of them are functional (if any at all!) but i'd love to hear if you are familiar with some of them, and what kind of project i could make with it...

here is a picture of them, and a list of their part numbers (i put in question marks when i couldnt read the label....)

Click the image to open in full size.

RCA ??

i would be interested in making, lets say... a tremolo pedal... maybe a tube drive... or just a very nice amp, for reamping stuff through different cabinets.

tell me what you think!

First one is a DL94 substitute i guess, 1.2V battery tube whit CT fillament

the second ? is a ECL85/pcl85 likely the last

The unidentified EF80 is a philips.

Its all standard radio stuff . the DL94 might be €2-3 if its good the rest is pretty much to common the EZ40 might be €5 if good but it looks worn..

russian tubes of Ebay cost €1,20 a peice new in box so you can build around a design instead of a tube. 6n1p 6n2p 6n3p are good

You have valves for about half a 1960s European TV with a 300mA series heater chain, plus a few odds and ends. None are particularly rare or valuable. I would give them to someone who likes playing with old TVs and radios. You could try ebay, but you might only cover your listing fees.
