Home Forums Design and Building Tube Talk Best Tubes for 2 Stroke Re: Re: Best Tubes for 2 Stroke


I experimented for a while and finally settled on a ’60’s Mullard ECC83 (12AX7), a NOS ’60’s Tung-Sol 5881, and a 1964 Silvertone 5Y3 (Sylvania?). The amp is perfect. I went with the 5881 because I love them so much in my Bassman and Bandmaster. I also use this amp to drive my homemade Leslie and it works perfectly with one 4 ohm speaker. The impedence switch is very handy for this. This amp is the best project I ever thought of doing. I am so glad I built it. Enjoy.
