    I just ordered a pair of NOS RCA black plates for my Carr Rambler and a Mullard CV4024. Crossing my fingers.

    RCA 6L6GC blackplates are the best sounding 6L6's I've ever experienced....especially in a Komet 60 :cool: . Good luck with the new rig!

    I agree that they sound incredible most of the time and I have a whole bunch of them but for big bottle tubes, if you can snag some Genelex KT66's and if they fit, I've found that tube to be one of the best sounding big bottle tubes I have ever heard in my life from my personal experience and ears.

    You'll dig those RCAs and those Mullards too!

    Enjoy the fine tone. Just keep an eye on them. When blackplates go bad, the failure mechanism is to draw more and more current.
