    [​IMG][​IMG]I scored a pair of Tung Sol 6BQ5's from the bay this week for a very nice price. 7ma apart, which isn't so bad. Very robust looking tubes !![​IMG]

    I have a pair of the very same in my Cornell 18/20 Plexi, they sound great too, although mine have lost much of their markings and the boxes are long gone.

    Well it looks like these run too hot in the Goodsell as one tube started to show a little red plating. I put them in my Rocky Top 18 with good results. Very big sound stage with beautiful balance. Very nice indeed.
