Bendix 5852 swap for 6x5 in L4
« on: 7 Jun 2015, 10:32 pm »
This Premium Bendix RedBank tube is described as a drop-in replacement for the 6X5 rectifier.

Best case is to find someone who's successfully using it.  Anyone?

Also wish to get the "official word" on this substitution.  Fred?

TIA.

Its a close but not direct sub and could lead to overheating though it would probably be fine.   

That said, I don't really recommend them sonically.  I just never cared for the Bendix tubes--check out a nice staggered plate tung sol or slyvania for cheaper.

Thanks Fred - a '60s TS is already on the way.
