Sweetheart wife brings a tall cold Booster Juice at the near end of another long day of testing 6SN7 vacuum tubes.

It's a dry 31C here today. Iced BC Growers pear cider with a splash of lemon works for me! 8)

Cheers

Soon we'll be able to show pictures of the buds we decided to use to end our day..and lose our minds for a while. And then have a foggy morning....

They would go and legalize the dang stuff just when I'm getting old enough that I've pretty well given it up.

I can always hook you up with my brother in Picton - He knows where to find the nicest and smoothest strains of that fine Prince Edward County herb! (and you thought PEC was only about vineyards and wine!)

Had a few inquiries about the availability of these 6SN& valves I'm testing. But (mostly) the inquirees don't really know what it is they really, really, want.

So here's the deal - I need to know at least most of the following.
Do you want,
Specific Manufacturer
Specific country of origin
Tall bottle
Short bottle
Fat base tall bottle
Fat base short bottle
Medium base tall bottle
Medium base short bottle
Chrome dome
Clear glass
Smoked glass
Black plate
Grey plate
top getter
side getter
bottom getter
dual getter
Halo getter
'D' getter

And since they're dual triodes.
Matched internal electronics (both triodes)
Matched pairs/quads - (internal & external)

Or - to help out - go watch all three of Brent Jesse's YouTube Videos about How To Spot Rare 6SN7s
http://www.audiotubes.com/6sn7.htm

Phew!! :-)
