some ge 6189 triple plates off ebay for 20 each-installed
4 hamond organ tubes on the way-11 dollars shipped
and 2 brimar also off ebay 40 shipped also enroute
it doesnt cost alot to vastly improve the sound-like all tube units i guess-
Well I now have these two big white boxes setting in my living room (75lb. a piece), that are about as awkwards as anything I've picked in quite awhile. So this weekend we'll be running them 24/7. Will feed them with one of the four preamps I have laying around, and into a pair of Polk speakers I normally will use in my home theater system. Hope the neighbors understand!
The 6189 tube is a new one for me. I have a bunch of 12 series tubes as well as several matched pairs of 5751's, but none of these. Klaus told me last night that I'd be breaking in my new preamp in July, so I guess I'd best get to looking around. Gonna be a busy weeked I see!
