Mazda/Brimar 6CG7s are very good. I've been running Telefunken E88CCs for a couple of years. Outstanding.

Have fun,

We have been using EH 6922 tubes in our T10RB preamps for some time now with excellent results.  It is a version of the 6DJ8 tube.

These should work fine in the T8 of T8+ preamps too.

They are shorter than the 6CG7 tube so will fit with the cover on.  ;)

Your preamp will run cooler than with 6CG7 or 6N1P tubes.

We have them available for $35 a pair plus $10 shipping.

Greetings & Welcome to AC robdive1    :thumb:  Just a note, not all 6CG7 Mazda/Brimars are equal. Two of us here had multiple failures within a short period in our T-8s. Tubes not from Frank. YMMV

Frank, can you use the 6922 tubes in the Ultra II Hybird preamp that uses the 6CG7's?
