Default KT100...what's this ??

Hi there.........what's so about this tube that makes it different to the 88's ? Or is it another KT88 idol........a typical sales remarketing flannel ?

It is slightly different than KT88. It also has the large plate structure like the KT88. The glass is heavier, but the KT88 is reported to be a better sounding tube from Valve Art.

ummm...never judge a book by it's cover....I'm not convinced on a genetically modified Kt88....these have been swawing around for 50yrs or so and made their mark......seems pointless......JJ KT88 glass is also pretty thick......
More internal metal = more outgassing and higher cost for really no difference in performance.....for non critical apps one might chin-up towards the KT90.
RIP

Best do a search on the KT90 at the Audio Asylum. Extensive info is available regarding the KT90.
