I was digging through some tubes my neighbor gave me this evening from some old stereo his FIL gave him. I now have 5 vintage HAMMOND grey plate 6bq5s supposedly from the late 50s or early 60s. Can anyone help me identify them for sure? All I can make out is Hammond in silver lettering around the middle of the tube, a halo getter, grey plates and a white six sided plate below the getter. I have them in now....I'll let you know how they sound later.
btw, Mike Beam built me 2 fixtures for placing one OPT per amp on it's side to prevent field interference between OPTs. I don't know if that counts as a mod, but MANY thanks to Mike for the kindness,
Listening to Blow by Blow by Jeff Beck on the new to me Ariston TT. Sounds pretty damn good. I picked up the Jeff Beck, 2 Eagles LPs, The Babys and Sunburst Finish by Be Bop Deluxe, all for $9. Be Bop is next in rotation."
