We had a great day. Bought some 40s vintage 6L6s for the amp build and met Marks brother. Found a really nice record store too.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

The correct term is hamfest. That will be the only time I see my Markies pic this year as he is adamant about not coming to CF 18. We all need to make him aware of the fact that he is a integral part of the fest and he will be missed.

I also sent a PM to Markie. Never opened it. :(

Just an fyi Mark tells me that he does not visit this forum anymore so a P.M. is just going to sit there with no response.

Russ, I found some nice RCAs.....and the guy I bought them from lives 30 minutes from me. I’ve made arrangements to pick up some 6550s from him too.

I don't have much of a problem texting him. Takes him a bit sometimes, but I get a response. He knows I miss him already...told him I was coming to serenade him at his house outside his window like a dying cat singing Ludacris till he decides to at least visit.

He told me he'd make me coffee and wear headphones and to bring an umbrella because it was raining. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I'm running RCA 6L6GC's in the Marshall project amp. You'll like the sound, I'm sure of it!

What make are the 6550's also RCA, or Tung-Sol?

Tung-Sol and RCA are the tubes he mentioned. I hope he sticks with the prices he quoted me \:D/
