Awesome sounding 12ax7 from pre-war Yugo...
Ei Yugoslavia bought all of the old Telefunken stock and equipment in the 1970s, and produced these tubes, identical to original Telefunken smoothplates! These were about the best to come out of Eastern Europe in the late 1970s, they even flash orange when energized like the vintage Europe tubes do. Available under several labels as Edicron, RSD, National, Trigon. Tight-matched pairs available.
I found a source for these and was wondering A) anyone have any listening impressions. B) is the above story legit?
Looking for a lower cost, great sounding tube for the 12AX7 position in the new Norh amp I'll be receiving later this week. This is for a secondary rig and I'm not spending hundreds on tubes for it, but I want something different than current porduction tubes.
I have it on good authority (DKG999) the current production Svotek 12AX7 is a nice sounding tube, thoughts?
I know other EI tubes get good reviews from people on CP, but what about these?
