Those might be Mullards that were sold to Siemens and labeled Siemens. If so they should be the same as the Mullards you already have. Chauss should know for sure. Send him a pm.


Thats what I was thinking Snoop, they look to be Mullards. I have 6DJ8 mullards but dont have any 12AX7 Mullards yet, thats why Im thinking about trying them.

Those look look Blackburn Mullards....nice rare tube- go for it!!!
How did you like the RFT's? - I think they are a little "crisper" than the Mullards, but then again each system is a bit different too.
If you like acoustic guitar music- the Mullards are a GREAT tube for that!

Check toward the bottom of page 8, that was my first impression of the RFT's. I really like them and they are not even broke in yet.

Re: 490t tube change time??

Good to hear- Glad you are enjoying them!They are one of my favorites-at least in my system-
Mullards are right behind them but sound best with more "intimate" music IMHO (ie: smaller settings)

Cheers!
