i remember seeing some specific tube models mentioned but can't seem to find any on the board now. i haven't had to replace tubes so my knowledge is zero. anyone have any good experiences with specific tubes? thanks in advance. josh
The Spacexpander has the tube model codes printed next to the 3 tubes. <BR>There are two ecc83/12ax7 tubes. ecc83 and 12ax7 are just 2 different names for the same thing. 12ax7 is the more commonly used designation. <BR> <BR>There is one 7247. <BR> <BR>I got my tubes (or valves as they are more commonly known in the UK) from Watford Valves in the UK (I'm in the UK). I can recommend them, and the guy there was very helpful with my questions. <a href="http://www.watfordvalves.com/home.asp" target="_blank">http://www.watfordvalves.com/home.asp</a> <BR> <BR>Watford valves list 18 different 12ax7 tubes - but have a description of each one. I think I went for the £8 Sovtek ones. The 7247 is less common with a choice of 2 on Watford Valves. <BR> <BR>There are of course other tube sellers.
