Default You lucky Bastard!!!

I can't believe it!!! That's my dream come true!

If they are taking up too much space, I could store some tubes in the amps I'm about to build! And I won't charge you a cent!!!

I took the big happy face to mean it was a jest. Steve (ApexJr) is a good & honest guy. I have had many dealings with him, and the one time i was in LA i visited him and his little warehouse -- packed full of goodies, a must see on any vists to LaLaLand.

5691
fancy expensive mil version of the 6SL7-GT, you lucky bastard!!

6DJ8
6922

frame grid medium mu dual triodes, mayn audio applications.


6L6GC
EL34
7591
pentodes and beam power tetrodes widely used for audio

EL84
pentode, best sounding triode-wired
One of my preferences.

12AX7
7247
5751
high mu dual triodes, super for audio

12AT7
6201
similar to ECC81, not my taste for audio but widely used.

7044
similar to E182CC, low-mu trode with high transcond., super for audio

12BH7
5963
similiar to 12AU7, low-mu dual triode
good for audio.

See that you get your hands on a reprint of the "Essential characteristics" tube data book by General Electric. Should be cheap, terrific info source.

JasonL,
if i'd be you, i would be very careful with such statements unless i can back it up.
Even then .. others reading this may feel uncomfortable about you, not about the person targeted by you ..... gossiping always falls back on the gossip.
And if you intended to make a joke, you atleast could make use of those funny smilies.

Bernhard,

I think the statement you are attributing to jason was really from earlier up in the thread from someone else, and Jason didn't get it imbedded in a quote with proper attribution. The original statement, IB was in jest, but from the posts not quite clear enuff that it was in jest.

At any rate, no-one (except perhaps his ex-wife) should have any worries about dealing with Steve -- he has a lot of useful surplus stuff and he is ready to stand behind it.

Default old eqt.

Appreciate everyone's interest and advice.

planet10--thanks for you info; will hang onto the stuff

Thatch Ear--All in new and original boxes. This is pretty complicated but fun! I appreciate your disclosure regarding tube expertise but you could have fooled me!

seangoesbonk--As the saying goes, "Even a blind hog finds an acorn every once in a while." With your help, my eyesight is improving!

JasonL--I took it as a joke just as planet10 did.

dice45--Mercy!!

With a list as you have presented makes me want to dash to this building and pad lock it and fast!

There are a lot of books around here, too. What info will I get out of the GE data reference? Assume it will become evident once I start a tube amp project. Although I've never soldered a connection, I have an electronics technician still employed at this facility--he will assist when needed.

By the way, care to suggest a design for my first amp? I think I have enough parts to cobble something together. I have read through this forum and noted plenty of first projects.

Thanks,
Rick
