bah!

Gary Dahl (the guy who I got the idea of using 6CJ3s from) told me that these tubes used a magnoval socket, so indeed, that's what I got. heh. well, it's not too much of a problem as long as I know what's going on.

Some tubes use the NOVAR sockets, Gary Dahl, NASA, who cares??
Others use MAGNOVAL sockets...
Point is use the right one for the job...
And stop complaining if you mix them up, or anyone else for that
matter.

One more moronic complaint and I'll give the difference down to the millimeter or what did you think?


Cheers,

Goes to show what the problem can be like?

Obviously you didn't know or you wouldn't be having to ask
...

And yes, I DO consider it pretty silly and you CAN hate me for pointing it out....

Cheers,
