A pin for pin replacement? Or are you looking to optimize some performance aspect?

14N7, 12SN7, 7N7 - all of which are reasonably cheap but lower distortion. There are lots of more expensive alternatives, but they're not much better, and some are worse.

Default ECC82 Replacement

Tiago,
How about a 12BH7? It's pin compatible and a really good sounding tube

Yup...That's one I like to use...

There also the 6CG7/6FQ7 or it's 12.3 volt brother...
The noval 6SN7/12SN7 if you like.

Direct equivalents are the 6189 (me no like) or 5814A (I like better), 5963 etc.,etc...

Cheers,

Thanks, i'll try to find the 12BH7. The goal is sonic improvement, not replacement for a dead valve.
The pinout does not need to be the same, though it would be nice that the heater voltages are 6.3v
In fact i'll probably buy a few of the models you all suggested and give each one a try.


Regards,
Tiago

Hello, I have just bought a pair of Philips 6189 for phase splitting in my Copland CTA-501 from my supplier: www.demostenes.no
He says 6189 - Equivalent to ECC 82 and 12AU7. Manufactured by Philips ECG (=Sylvania) in US. This is a military NOS valve. Probably one of the best ECC 82 type in amplifiers such as Conrad Johnsen and others.

Since I am new to this, why don't you like 6189?

Best regards

Default Choices Choices

If the valve is used as a concertina phase splitter , changing the type will hardly make any difference . However if it's not I second the choice of 6SN7/7N7 which are excellent . Another type to look for would be the JJ ECC99
