Need some advice , i have the chance to purchase some RCA 6l6 blackplates
that are 12yrs old not matched for $75. for the pair
should i buy them or spend the extra cash and buy NOS from a dealer
IMHO nos tubes can be a crapshoot. I have 2 sets of RCA 6L6 Blackplates perfectly matched,they truly deserve there reputation. Got mine from Mike at KCA many years ago. IMHO worth the extra money to get quality, there is a lot of nos junk out there. A good set will give you many many years of tonal bliss.Good Luck!
