This is a very good tube – it’s actually the best GE tube that I’ve heard :). Very good bass and mid-range – very good soundstage. Great details. It is 5-Star after all. In a blind test that I performed, this tube was indistinguishable from Sylvania JHS 5751. Even the construction of the two tubes is extremely similar to just a few differences. In any case, highly recommended – if you don’t spend $100 on Sylvania JHS or Gold Brand – try this one first, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Rolled this tube again through another amp and another prove that this tube is superb! I compared it again to JHS, RCA & GB 5751 tubes. The sound between black plates is incredibly similar with GB with gray plates standing out of the bunch. Very good, very transparent tube.
