Due to the larger plate structure, if you're the kind of guy who likes to thwack their tubes with their fingernails or pencil erasers.. these will likely reward you with a loud "PING!" through the speakers.
The solution?
Never ever thwack them!!!!

Will ship and package using all the original boxes

Vintage 1960's ECF80-MULLARDS @ $45.00 each
Stamped Dynaco Mullards
Made in Great Britain
The Mullard Radio Valve Co. Ltd was founded in 1920.
In 1923,to meet the huge consumer demand in electronics Mullard entered an agreement with Philips of Holland and by 1926 Philips bought Mullard and established one of the greatest valve manufacturing companies in world history.
They developed many iconic valve such as the ECC83, EF86, EL34,EL37, EL84, GZ34 and GZ37.
These are regarded as the best valves of their type ever made and original Mullard items are high prized by Musicians Broadcasters and Audiophiles the world over due to their sound quality.
You can see how these valves were made on the front of our website in the Blackburn storey.
Mullard ECF80 was designed for the professional VHF communications market.
It consists of a triode section which was used as the oscillator and a screened pentode section as the mixer.
The valve has two cathodes, so two independent valves are sited in the one glass valve.

Thanks most kindly for looking!

Here's a brief list of some audio useful loctals, and their octal equivalent:

7A4 - loctal 6J5 (1/2 of a 6SN7GT)

7AF7 - mu of 16.5, very similar otherwise to a 6SN7 or 6CG7/6FQ7

7B5 - loctal 6K6

7C5 - loctal 6V6GT

7C7 - loctal 6SJ7 (or really close to it!)

7F7 - loctal 6SL7

7F8 - no equivalent, mu of 48, rp of 3300, twin VHF triode, used by jc morrison in his "Siren Song" preamp
as written up in Sound Practices.

7N7 - loctal 6SN7GT

7Z4 - fullwave indirectly heated rectifier, a bit more current capability (100ma./plate) than a 6V4/EZ80. Probably
make a nice preamp rectifier!

All the tubes above use 6.3 volts on the heaters!

Another possibility is the 14XXX series of loctals. Almost all the tubes above are available in 12.6 volt versions. There
is no 14B5 or 14Z4 though.
By using a 7F7 voltage amp, a 7N7 or 7AF7 phase splitter, and a pair of 7C5s as outputs, you can make a nice
push-pull all loctal amplifier! You can use a 7Z4 rectifiers if you don't go SS!

I have many of these tubes in stock, drop me a note if you are interested!

Thanks most kindly for looking!

Also have some very nice and well balanced 1960's GE 5814A tubes
Made in USA.
GE 5814A triple mica tubes 12AU7
These are the very desirable triple mica version.
Tubes are all matched with 5%
It is a very good upgraded variant substitution for 12AU7 tubes.
All tubes tested on my B+K tube tester with no leaks or shorts.
Tubes all measure between 2300 and 2500 where minimum on this tubes is 1175.
New tubes measure around 2200.
Selling for $80.00 a pair INCLUDES SHIPPING TO ANYWHERE IN CANADA!
.



*Also have some very nice and quiet 5963 which is a MEDIUM-MU TWIN TRIODE. 9—PIN MINIATURE TYPE
Very little is written about these 5963 tubes.
It's practically today unknown, yet these are excellent fantastic replacements for 12AU7 tubes!
Smooth and sweet,yet bargain priced compared with many European brands!
Very smooth tube from top to bottom with no weakness!
These are a nice industrial/military upgrade variant type which is nearly identical to the standard 12AU7.
RCA made a nice black plate version of this tube
The 1950’s RCA 5963 sounds more dynamic than the standard 12AU7 Blackplate
It’s also a very good low-noise tube.
GE has it in their broadcast line.
The plate voltage rating is a little lower than for a 12AU7, but for most applications, it will work fine.
It has a rugged cathode and should be quite long lived, similar to the 5814.
That specially-designed cathode is said to withstand long periods of time in cut-off without damaging the tube (cathode poisoning).
This made them a great choice for NORAD computers, which led to a good supply of them on the USA West Coast.
Use them and you will marvel at the quality and value.
They are dead-silent and seem to have an unusually long lifespan.
Very satisfied with the sound they produce.
A truly fine 12AU7 variant from the 1950's, many tube audiophiles feel these can outperform most other NOS 12AU7 tubes!
In computer (and some other) service, tubes were quite often operated as switches, biased to cutoff (no plate current) for long periods of time and then turned on, while always the heater and cathode were warmed up and ready to go.
In ordinary tubes, this leads to a condition known as "cathode interface resistance" or "sleeping sickness."
The cathode interface is a layer of metal, usually nickel, between the cathode sleeve and the oxide coating that emits electrons. In ordinary tubes, under conditions of long-duration tube cutoff, it generates a growing resistance until at last the cathode "goes to sleep."
Computer tube cathodes were specially treated to survive those long periods of cutoff without developing cathode interface resistance

5963 tubes (12AU7 variants) from $35.00 each

G.E. long plates (1960's) @ $35.00 each
RCA long plates (1960's) @ $35.00 each
HP-AMPEREX long plates @ $35.00 each

Also have some Made-in the-USA, single RCA 12AU7 black plate tubes in very good condition.
Very lightly used! (used/burned in for 10 hours)
Barely broken-in.
Usually sell for over $100.00 Cdn) each
You can have them at $60.00 Cdn each.

Also have some very strong tested excellent ECC85 - 6AQ8 tubes available @ $30.00 each

Extra Description:
Keep the following extra descriptions

The EF86 is a high gain pentode designed to amplify low-level audio signals. It is typically used as a preamp in audio equipment and instrument amplifiers. Because of its design, the EF86 is much more sensitive than other common preamp tubes like the 12AX7, and achieves more gain.

With all these good things going on, why don’t more designs feature this tube?

The reason is simple.

A complex mechanical structure, combined with a high gain design, make the EF86 very susceptible to vibration and the resulting microphonics.

A triode has three active elements while a pentode has five. Most people know that a 12AX7 is a dual triode, that is, two preamp tubes in one small bottle. The EF86 is a single, very large preamp tube by comparison. The EF86 also has an internal shield structure that is physically tied to pins 2 and 7. There is a lot of precision hardware that is carefully aligned to prevent physical damage or electrical failure. Older tubes from Telefunken and Amperex used to flash metal directly onto the base of the tube between pins 2 and 7. I can only assume this was to reduce the number of physical leads inside the bottle. The JJ EF806-S is a very good replica of a Telefunken and uses this method today.

Here is a quote from an old Amperex data sheet for the EF86:

“The tube can be used without special precaution against microphonic effects, in amplifiers in which the input voltage is greater than 10 millivolts, when the tube is mounted in the vicinity of a 5 watt loudspeaker with an efficiency of 5%” The VOX AC-4 is the only guitar amp close to these specs.

This tube was designed for radios, tape recorders and home audio. Anything that has low volume or the ability to isolate the tube from vibration. The EF86 made its way into guitar amplifiers because it had a lot of gain and a good track record in quality audio equipment. VOX, with the early AC30 is perhaps the best example. You would have to talk with the original designers, but an EF86 can easily drive a signal through a simple tone control and high-cut filter into the output section. If you take the tremolo and vibrato circuits out of a vintage VOX using an EF86, that is exactly what you will find.

Modern amp builders generally do not bother with this tube because it is so hard to find one that will work in a tube combo amplifier. There are a few like Dr. Z, Matchless, Bad Cat and VOX that still use this tube, and that may be because those amps often have their roots in classic British amps and EL84 output tubes. Some things are so good; you are willing to put up with their shortcomings.

Hope is not lost, because there are things you can do to make this tube work. There are no substitutes. If your equipment uses the EF86, you have to like it enough to deal with microphonics or get something else. Vintage Mullard design notes suggested using a tube socket that is shock mounted. You will see this in old Gibson and Fender guitar amps that used the 6SJ7 pentode, but the market could use a good modern alternative. One way to do it is to place small silicone O-rings between the tube socket and chassis. This helps isolate the socket from vibration while maintaining good electrical connections. Tube shields do not offer any reduction in vibration and may make the problem worse. If your equipment has sockets mounted to a printed circuit board, your only choice is to dampen the tube.
