Can't wait to hear how they compare to other tubes you have tried. Many thanks for posting your impressions.
How are the dynamics and bass? These are the aspects I am most concerned about.
Any more updates folks?
Try a NOS Sylvania. Not expensive, and a excellent performer.
+1 on that as I just got my Rogue Cronus Magnum and am keen to try out some alternative (and hopefully low-cost ) tubes...
Congrats on finally scoring a Rogue. Hope you are enjoying it!
Hi Roscoeiii,Thanks, I'm really enjoying it, very clear, strong and full sound. I do have one issue though but I'm not sure if it's the room, the source material or what. I find on some material (MFSL Exodus CD by Bob Marley, etc.) that the highs are a bit "etched" and hard and the cymbals sound a bit blurry This is why I was thinking perhaps a change in tubes might assist. I'm quite the newbie at this so I appreciate any advice offered!
Thanks but where to source them? Every place I look (ebay, tubedepot, other audio groups, etc.) they're running at least $200 pair...
i think you should also let the tubes settle in for a few weeks. btw what are the tubes they sell the unit with?tom
OK, here is a secret (SSHH) Call Radio Electric Supply in FL, ask for Roy or Dale, and order some 6681. They are a mobile 12AX7. They have quite a few, they are all Sylvania, and 20.00 each. I got a pair for a buddy, and he says they smoke the EH tubes he was using.
It's a regular 12AX7, but has been screened to operate in mobile applications. The filament can operate up to 20% over or under. It's actually a better 12AX7.
