for an upcoming project i found a couple of funny Eimac-tubes. Eimac is known for its quality stuff....so i would like to give it a try.
It's the 35TG (the same characterisitcs as the 35T but with the grid-connection popping out on the side).
I already "collected" some of these beautifully made tubes and i discovered that there were diferences:
- zirconium getter not on all tubes;
- different stamps;
Maybe you can help me out finding the correct ages of these tubes and even have more of these goodies to buy/swap/whatever. Any information on them is great.
Amplifier-wise: i'm going to make a ultra-parafeed 35TG with a 6HV5 as driver. This two-stage amp on 800 ~1000 Volt should be smaller than my current 833-beasts. My wife banished these from the living room.....but allowed my tube-hobby there.....when smaller. The smaller should be no problem; currently it's 280 kg and 4-chassis for the power-amplifier....so there is a broad margin to work within.
Suggestions for a nice amplifier ? Do you have experience with this tube ? It simply looks stunning; characteristic-wise it's a A2-tube....ideas ?
Looking forward to your replies. I'll submit a couple of posts with the current three different models i have.
Eimac 35TG "type 1"
Here's the first type Eimac 35 TG

Eimac 35TG "type 1" BOX
Maybe the box with tyoe 1 will help ?

As for the type 2 35TG box:
larger box, patent numbers on the label.
There is a faintly readable stamp on the box:
