    I was at church cleaning out the music library and had a great find. I now have 16 RCA Blackplate 6V6 GT's as well as 2 GE 5U4G's. Well I have been debating on getting a deluxe reverb I guess this may be a sign??? I am pretty excited about this. I have heard that the RCA's are awesome tubes, now I have to get a amp to put them in.

    They're probably all whipped. Send them along to me and I'll dispose of them for a minimal fee.

    Just kiddin', in case it wasn't obvious. ;) Congratulations on your, um, divine gift! :)

    Great find!! Get your self a Weber bias-rite and try to match them up in an amp ( Deluxe Reverb!! ) that uses 6V6's.
